This sad little face came from the Greek island of Paxos. I found it on a beach but because it weighed so much (1.5kg) I decided to leave it. For the rest of the day I regretted that decision. Next day I went back to the same place and it was still there so it was meant to be!!
This 'sheep's head' also came from Paxos a few years later. In the 'eye socket' is trapped a tiny shell which moves when you lift the head and looks just like and eye opening and closing. I spent the rest of the holiday trying to find a suitable body but to no avail!
This friendly monster came to live with us years ago from Hartland Point in Devon.
I have plates and bowls full of others which are just lovely shapes or colours. I'm always on the look out for the perfect heart but haven't quite got there yet.
