Imagine a work that lasts for centuries: it ages, it cracks, it may be broken and repaired but the makers vision remains. Imagine what we create now being used, breaking, being mended and repaired, lost and then returned as treasures found. Elizabeth Harris and Catherine Nicholls explore the process of deconstruction in a form of “time travel” with our newly made relics and discover the beauty in the bro·ken. As makers we would be content to see our work live on, in whole or in pieces.
