Click to enlargeEach Golden Speckle a Foraminifera Shell

6" x 3"

Porcelain clay and ocean sediment from Ceara Rise, with a foot glazed with sediment from Boston Harbor, near the airport. Each speckle in the brown glaze is likely to be a melted spurt of calcium carbonate from a foraminifera, or other organism that once lived.

Inside I laid a big piece of clearish sea glass, with a smaller piece of old and very intense deep blue glass. Thanks to fire.

Says on exterior band, "Sea glass, Dark Cemetery, Boston Harbor, because of Earth Us and Fire."
