"Where is SHE now?"...surely
Also pottery would surely be biodegradable...earth to earth...even in a land-fill, so it's offering as a "sacrifice to the earth" will work regardless of where it now lies...and who is to say that the landfill site isn't over what was once a sacred site to someone.
I dare say there will be some who claim that a can of drink(or even an empty drink can) is a sacrificial offering just because they have chanted a few words over it then slung it with great reverence at a stone circle.
I don't think of myself as arrogant, perhaps a little ignorant of the practices involved, and as such don't understand why a physical offering(aka litter) is any more appropriate and spiritual than an invocation!
