When we work in the garden we like looking at the bits of broken pottery, metal and glass that we unearth. I presume most of us gardeners do the same. Ever since we first moved to our garden here at Plealey ten years ago we have been collecting together the more interesting pieces without a thought of what we might do with them. Our bucket filled up until recently I thought I would select out interesting pieces that would go together to make a few pictures with.
We chose square white frames to give simple plain backgrounds and I managed to create these three pictures.
Here they are in more detail. I hope you enjoy looking at them – I certainly enjoyed making them. I like their simplicity and crispness. I photographed them outside on the lawn when the sun would add shadow but they have a place waiting for them. We intend to hang them on a wall outside which is painted a pale cream colour.

Love these! When I saw the bucket of stuff I couldn’t imagine art coming out that rusty old stuff, but these look amazing!
Cheers.We are now deciding where to hang them. Have a few ideas so will post in future once up.
Those are wonderful and have such meaning for both of you. Your creativity is showing again. 🙂
Wonderful discoveries of the past–lucky finds.
Smart compositions Malc. Nice way to bring indoors a bit of your garden.
