Site-driven material

Residents of Wah Fu maintain two informal crossings over the stream leading to Waterfall Bay. Along the path they have utilised make-shift construction methods, constructing paving, stairs and handrails where deemed necessary. This shard was found in a bucket, where residents collect broken ceramic, glass and brick to be used as aggregate for cement-based paving. The stoneware piece may have been originally used as a decorative trim roof tile or, perhaps, a planter pot.
