Old Bones and Yeast + Mud + This

5.75" x 3.5"

The warm-colored sediment on the mug's exterior is from inside an amphora taken from a shipwreck (Either Tannit or Elissa) at Ashkelon Excavations in the eastern Mediterranean. Economists, conservators, engineers, archaelogists and more people have been researching this material. It's the only sediment that makes gassey blisters and when I asked molecular gastronomist Patricia Gadsby about it she suggested that yeasts from the wine, even from 8th Century B.C. couyld still be active. I've designed some process to minimize these blisters on mugs.

Porcelain with Glacial Sarsen, Words on Back

6" x 2.75"

Brown glaze is glacial sarsen from Fyfield Downs where Stonehenge stones once were. The muddy slurry contracts after being applied--usually a day later and more on an exterior convex surface than an interior concave surface. Note on the exterior how it beaded up into stone-like globs during firing (It could have flaked off onto the kiln shelf but it didn't.) Green glaze assembled from refined materials, center of sea glass.

Subduction on Porcelain
Subduction on Porcelain

6" x 3.25"

"Subducting plates folding, fracturing, fissuring", quoting a scientist who described subducting forces. On porcelain the sediment shrinks and peels and during firing relaxes back down. Some hints of copper green influence the shiny white interior glaze. Seaglass thumbwell.

Mouth of Amazon Where Land Nourishes Sea & Brazil Margin

11.25" x 2.75"

Brazil Margin sediment is the mottled area and the Mouth of the Amazon is the rim which, if you click for bigger images, you'll see has a mysterious texture that reflects bluish metallic light in a way that contrasts with the fractured seaglass center. Calligraphy on back says more about the materials.

Matte green and shiny brown rim assembled from refined materials.
