Whoops, It Broke
Wishbones ★ Glass Christmas Tree Ornaments ★ Figural Glass Candy Containers ★ Poignant Repairs
Whoops, It Broke considers those functional objects that were delicate vehicles in the service of a use, most of which did not survive. Common objects of everyday use were expected to break and were routinely discarded. This chapter is about collections of things that broke in the normal course of their utility and were replaced by different models (ex: glass Christmas tree ornaments, Dead Sea pots, Jeep glass candy containers) or they were refashioned into high art (ex: poignant repairs).
