Rescuing Artifacts

In salvaging architectural fragments, I think what motivates us is the same urge that drives the historic preservation movement – to save important parts of our architectural heritage. And if an entire building cannot be preserved, then we can still do our best to save ornament that embodies the workmanship of talented artisans and embodies the visual aesthetics of another era. *
