This piece speaks very loudly to me on a sentimental level. The wine vase belonged to my parents and was an always present ornament in our house when I was a child, fifty years ago. The other piece was made by my daughter while in high school. The two vessels, side by each, hold generational symbolism for me. . . . my oldest daughter and her grampa caring for each other. For you, maybe these are just different pieces of pottery. For me? Well, I know you understand.
