I would like to introduce you to Fragment Found (https://fragmentfound.com/archive/) a new online archive of printed pottery sherds that invites people to submit images of their finds and share knowledge, as well as the joy of collecting! The aim is to build a community which centres around collating, identifying and categorising mysterious pieces of history, which would otherwise remain undocumented. Selected fragments will become part of a series of ceramic artworks called ‘Imaginary Artefacts.’
The project is led by Eva Jack (artist), alongside Becky Sparks (web designer) and Kevin Andrew Morris (ceramicist) with the assistance of Claire Blakey (curator at the National Museum of Scotland). The project is supported by Creative Scotland.
To submit images of your finds please visit https://fragmentfound.com/submit/. You will also notice that each fragment’s page has a comment box, so if you recognise a piece please feel free to tell us what it is!
I look forward to seeing some of your finds,
