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.

This one has a band from the Mariana Trench, cruise named "Challenger Deep". Chatter pattern is Mid-Atlantic ridge and exterior, rim and center are submarine volcano's pumice-mud from Havre eruption. Foot glaze assembled from land-based materials.

Glass center framed by Earth crust slurry from Mid-Atlantic Ridge on chattered area surrounded by Namibian rock from a time named Snowball earth. Rim and back are glazes assembled from refined materials. A friend named this series "Reverse fried ice cream".

Dark brown is Penobscot Bay sediment and warm speckled glaze is from Muscongus Bay. Center of seaglass. Rim and foot of glaze assembled from refined materials.

On porcelain, interior of pumice/mud and exterior of M.A.R. basaltic rock slurry over a surface chattered when the bowl was leather-hard. Incised coordinates point to both sources. See more in the Havre Pumice/Mud category.

The crater ash is the dark speckly glaze. Other glazes from natural deposits and refined materials. The orangey color is a rare event. Click images to largest size and read back image for details.

Seaglass sprinkled in center of bowl over a blue brushstroke colors the otherwise thinly applied pumice/mud from the Kermadec Trench's volcanic eruption of 2012. See more in the Havre Pumice/Mud category.

On porcelain clay is the purest sample labeled "uber fabulous" by the geologist who gave me the ground rock that is melted into white rivulet glaze here. Rim and foot assembled from refined materials. Seaglass center.

On porcelain clay is the sediment glaze from Ashkelon Excavations. Copper green glaze assembled from refined materialks. Sea-glass center.
6" x 2.25"
On porcelain, Earth crust slurry is brown glaze on the back. Interior is a copper red glaze assembled from refined materials. Copper volatilizes during firing and the areas of green and red show the air circulation that carried that copper through the kiln's chamber at high temperature.

Click to read and search to learn. On porcelain clay, interior brown is the Antarctica sediment glaze. Back is glaze assembled from refined materials. Center of sea glass.

Please, at check-out select "no shipping needed". I think everything is set to ship to Australia now.
Chatter-patterned area of Mid-Atlantic Ridge rock slurry framed by speckled area of sediment core containing the iridium anomaly from an asteroid that hit Earth about 65 million years ago. Back has Earth crust slurry. Lavender glaze assembled from refined materials. Center of sea-glass.

On porcelain clay, a good example of how the Costa Rican Accretionary Prism sediment looks when applied thinly and thickly. Center of seaglass. Rim and foot glazes assembled from refined materials.

I found a little split in the rim -- still sound but definitely a flaw.

With coordinates. Rock slurry is thin and transparent on the back, applied more thickly on the interior chatter-patterned area. Glazes assembled from refined materials are celadon and copper green (Oribe).

From the exit of the Rhone River, where outgassing made geoclutter are words passed to me with the bag of sediment that is very sensitive to application -- it reveals details of the clay underneath like few others do.

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.
Exterior is from a briny venting area of the Red Sea, taken where the water was 133°F. Visit Red Sea Hot Brine for more information.
Interior and foot are a copper red glaze, assembled from refined materials that can be red or green or clear, depending on kiln atmosphere and length of time during firing when the volatile copper is exiting out the flue. In this piece, near the interior bottom there are signs of deep red.

On porcelain, exterior is Red Sea. Interior is a copper glaze assembled from refined materials.

Made of porcelain clay, this bowl says, "Brazil Margin & Mouth of Amazon River where fresh water nourishes a salty sea". Interior brown is Amazon River sediment and golden strip on back is Brazil Margin sediment. Other glazes assembled from refined materials. Center of sea glass.

Back side is the silica-rich pumice-mud from the eruption of submarine volcano at Havre. Earth's magma from Mid-Atlantic rock slurry is the brown basalt-like glaze on the chatter-patterned surface inside the bowl.
Other glazes, copper green and shiny brown were assembled from refined materials. Sea-glass center.
