Click to enlargeBlack Sea: Anoxic Seasonal Blooms

4" x 1.5"

The seasonal blooms in the Black Sea core make striped layers of visibly different material. The choked out plant fibers pull the mud off as I try to brush on what little I have -- while leaving a sheen of salt residue and allowing light to pass through the porcelain clay walls. Center is sea glass -- celadon and copper green glaze are glazes assembled from refined materials.
