If you can visit the studio you'll see some that aren't on the web and you'll be able to read the subtlety of those that are only natural deposits (no refined materials).

West of South Africa and Mid-Atlantic Ridge Rock

12.5" x 3.5"

Interior bowl is heavily applied sediment from off the the west African coast, thanks to R/V Melville, one of the first sediments given to me because of some imploded cores. Rim is rock slurry squeezed into a thick pile that contracted and metamorphosed into brick-like shapes. Coordinates written clearly on the back, where copper green-blue glaze assembled from refined materials frames calligraphy.

Interior is mappbable -- click for bigger images to read coordinates. Rim is rock slurry from Earth's crust that was heavily applied when wet and later contracted and metamorphosed in the kiln into brick shapes (I did not make the brick shapes). Lonny Lipsett, a geologist and science writer named this process "remagmatizing". White matte exterior glaze assembled from refined materials.

Undersea Phenomena ~ Deep Trenches & Volcanics

11.25" x 2.75"

The biggest submarine volcanic eruption known is Havre volcano. The deepest part of the world's oceans in the western Pacific is known as Mariana Trench -- it's about 1,580 miles long with an average width of 43 miles. It reaches a maximum-known depth of 36,070 feet at a small slot-shaped valley in its floor known as the Challenger Deep. The brown band surrounding the center on this bowl is from the Challenger Deep.

On porcelain from center outward, Havre pumice/mud, Mariana Trench, crushed blue seaglass, written provenance, Mid-Atlantic Ridge rock slurry, and more Havre volcano-mud.

The Dark Cemetary ~ Ocean as Womb and Tomb

13" x 2.75"

Of all sediment samples I've tried, the sediment on this rim is close to my favorite because it has a matte brown leathery look that allows each foram to suspend in it and speckle yellow from its shell that gives me goose-bumps while I reflect on the vitality that once emanated from the shell's pores. An odd kind of friendship, I know. And about the same time I was experiencing this life-changing transition, I saw an article in the New York Times about the ocean being a "womb and tomb". These vast cycles of space and time are a comfort to my sense that contemporary life is chaotic.

Not a bowl you appreciate for dramatic color! Interior sediment from Brazil Margin, rim from Ceara Rise, west of Africa.
