4.5" x 3.75"

Commemorating Earth's generative nature, this series is all about hydrothermal vent granules. They're used as a stain in the vent-shaped area, over which I've written with a brush. Top third exterior is a dip of sediment from a NOAA designated marine sanctuary -- glaze is the Monterey Bay seafloor melted.

Interior shiny brown and exterior matte greenish are glazes assembled from refined materials. Seaglass thumbwell.
