Click to enlargeBlack Sea - Seasonal Blooms

4.25" x 1.75"

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. Intense center is sea glass -- celadon and copper green glaze on rim and foot were assembled from refined materials.
