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.

4" x 3"

K-T Band is under the whitish glaze (assembled from refined materials), under which is the Earth crust slurry from Mid-Atlantic Ridge, applied to clay where a chatter pattern happened when trimming at the leather-hard stage of drying.

Band under the lip is the sediment from the K-T Band., Other brown is a thin wash of a rock that looks very dense when applied thickly but here it's sheer. Sea-glass 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).

Band of sediment under shiny lip-dip is the K-T Band sediment. Lower exterior brown is rock slurry from Mid-Atlantic Ridge, applied and while wet, quickly brushed off in wisps that reveal the translucency of the clay when strong light hits the exterior. Interior shiny glaze assembled from refined materials. Thumbwell filled with glass.
