Trash and treasure in a bottle of debitage

Trash or treasure?


The bottle of debitage I keep on my man

Debitage is the name for the cut remains that are produced during the flintknapping, process (aka lithic reduction).

Many years ago, this bottle contained Thai iced tea. Now it holds the debitage remains of some stones and glass I’ve had the honor of shaping.

Does the journey of these flakes end here on this mantle, or do they have a shinier future in store?

Only time will tell.

Ta for now ❤️
