Down Deep & Out Far

Down Deep is from the Mid-Atlantic Ridge where drillings into crust of Earth were taken, cut, and given to me as slurry.

Out Far is the layer that formed from an asteroid impact that dispersed a cloud of extraterrestrial dust around Earth and settled into a thin band with unusually high concentrations of iridium. About this Cretacious-Tertiary Boundary.

As we spin on Earth, so spins the potter's wheel. As Earth wobbles, so clay on the wheel chatters. Here the vast landscape is glaze from those forces; rock slurry from mid-Atlantic Ridge and an iridium anomaly from the first sediment core that demonstrated the asteroid dust flying about the globe 65 million years ago.

Lavender glaze assembled from refined materials, used thickly and thinly on front and back. Seaglass center.

Dripping rocks!

Shoulder from the Cretacious Tertiary Boundary, when dinosaur-killing cloud of asteroid dust settles around the globe. It's this iridium that helps validate theories that Earth was covered with ice 600 million years ago. The Namibian rock from that era is slurry applied to the body of the pot here, named "Snowball Earth". Interior and exterior matte white (near base) are glazes assembled from refined materials. The rock slurry that rolled and beaded up during firing fascinates me and evokes curiosity about the sounds of whatever it was back then that lapped against shores (wherever THEY were back then).

Very translucent porcelain got a big blob of soupy Earth crust slurry poured into the center. Some gassy event got frozen into the cooled bowl -- blistered and split showing tension between the refined porcelain particles and the unrefined rock slurry. Same slurry applied thinly on the exterior of the bowl fired smoothly.

Band of asteroid-laden sediment is on the inside and outside -- in a narrow band underwhich words are written.

Not literally, but figuratively speaking this piece is covered with Earth crust slurry from Mid-Atlantic Ridge which, on porcelain, can be a bit sheer where thin and as it's thicker it's more metallic looking. A groove of clear sea-glass fractured and glistens in contrast to the other glazes. The center is "All".

The Axis With Heart
The Axis With Heart

5" x 3"

My metaphorical way of seeing is why I sometimes put red glass in the center when I use material from the mid-Atlantic Ridge. We can't see the molten core of Earth but eruptions of magma glow brightly and they do glow red at some stages (even under water!). The sheerness of the Earth crust slurry on the inside and outside of the bowl, I love.

On porcelain clay, the speckled band around the red center is sediment from the K-T Band.

Words say:dinosaur-killing cloud of extraterrestrial dust from the K-T Band and Earth's crust.

The firing amplified the land's dynamics by causing the melting matte white glaze to flow and carry the Earth crust slurry with it, resulting in an image of a ridge growing out of spreading plates. It captures the process of magma pushing up and forcing the two plates to diverge.

The back has a continuous band of writing, including what came to me with the material.
