#297 Picking up the pieces


Stephen hasn’t seen his high school girlfriend in nearly 30 years. Things didn’t end so well when they were teenagers, but suddenly he has the opportunity to reconnect with her. The only thing is something has changed in Stephen, something very big, and he’s not sure if his high school sweetheart is ready to find out.

This week we’re talking about picking up the pieces from a past life and building something completely new.


‘The only hole in my life’ by Carey Scheer

Carey met Stephen when she interviewed him for a video project in his home. A year later, Stephen contacted her out of the blue saying he had a crazy story for her, about his past life catching up with him.

In 2011, Saskia Scott lost her mother. During the grieving period that followed, Saskia found herself surrounded by reminders of her mum. Bits and pieces left behind, her belongings, but mostly her piles of clothes. Now, years on, Saskia has found a way to deal with the grieving process through her ceramic art practice.
