Random beach finds

As well as sea glass and patterned pottery, there are all the other little things on the beach that catch my eye. Sometimes it will be a particularly interesting stone or seashell, a plastic item, or something I can't even identify!
I pick up pieces of pottery that aren't interesting for their pattern, but for their shape. Many of these are kiln stilts, which were used for supporting pottery in the kiln. When I first saw them on the beach I thought they were the bones of some strange creature, and many people do call them kiln bones!
Some of the pottery pieces that I pick up are really useful for displaying other items, like my marbles and stoppers!
