MATERIALS:  Office wastebasket, unfired clay.

    An office wastebasket is filled with discarded clay tablets.  Some are crumpled, some are broken, and some are folded into paper planes. It is a depository of failures, trials, rough drafts that get a second of brief life on their way from the desk to the garbage.
