made of clay..

Posted by
Thea (Leeuwarden, Netherlands) on 26 April 2011 in Miscellaneous and Portfolio.

Fabricated from the early 17th. untill the beginning of the
20th.century,pipes were very common in Holland..
(seen on many paintings) and they were a kind of throwaway items
because they were very fragile.
I found some fragments in my childhood,a few here.

A fine shot. The pipe remains make a novel but very good subject for this shot. I like the angles and the textures presented. Excellent image.

I like how you are able to reveal part of the whole, but still give us a good idea of the whole. And the composition has such lovely light. It's such fun to see what you create.
