Breaking is Harder than fixing

I am presently working on my final year exhibition pieces, which are vessels representing urns. The urns are cracked and broken In places and ash is spilling.
I am looking at the fact that we as a society have lost the blueprint and what is supposed to be  progress is actually a loss of sensitivity to the fact that people are dying violently and most of them are our children. People are alive but not living, the home is not a sanctuary, but a morgue.
What I have discovered, is that it is not easy, after you work to learn to make something 'properly', to make it broken.
Should I make them smaller? Straighter?
Comments will really be appreciated right about now.
Be blessed,
