wooden doll, coral, brass letter, dry beetle my uncle brought back from the war, tin for shaving gear ... also back from the war.
Book spines & hand-painted flyleaves, the detritus that can never quite be thrown away
by Dale Copeland, 2009
Friends and relations give me the things that they can never quite throw away:
their fathers brought them back in their kitbags and kept them as though they mattered.
Is that all that history is, the bits pieced together from memories & souvenirs?
Dale's studio can be found on Surf Highway, Taranaki, New Zealand
