4.5" high x 3" wide

Mappable brown seafloor sediment applied to leather-hard clay, incised with coordinates from a cruise of R/V Oden. Interior shiny white assembled from refined materials.

The flashing shows a matte area, a shape that only could have been made by air currents in the kiln. Painting with wind is how I think of this intimacy with fire.
