work in progress: "Waldorf" new wharf pottery, england

fresh Plaster of Paris with the Green Family shards. 

it is a messy business that i do.

close-up of the shards. surprise, surprise, they stand!

and here's the thematic line-up.
the plaster is mixed with acrylic gesso.
 so, it should be a bit sturdy.
  will coat with gelatin or egg glue.  maybe egg tempera? 

art/not art?  these shards were dug up in the Green family yard.  obviously broken dishes, tossed a bit too far from the water to become beach glass (blue and white pottery shards 'willowware' were my favorite pickings from Pavilion Beach).
is this 'something we keep'?
