5.75" x 2.25" Porcelain
Rarely does the play of color from oxidizing and reducing kiln atmosphere show so clearly as one copper glaze shifts from turquoise to red.
Brown glaze on front and back are both from Red Sea. Exterior from 1966 and interior from 2008, coordinates describe 2008 sample, thanks to a joint cruise of KAUST & WHOI. Sea a map of this area and a cell biologistís microscopy image and more.
Exterior is from a briny venting area of the Red Sea, taken where the water was 133įF. 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.

Deep brown is the mineral-dense Red Sea sediment from coordinates stated. Where it interacts with celadon on interior and lower exterior it becomes the orangey brown. Seaglass thumbwell.

Red Sea exterior. A book called "Red Sea Hot Brines" was written about this hydro-thermal area. Interior glaze assembled from refined materials also has some Red Sea sediment in it as replacement for some yellow ochre.

Sediment is applied thickly inside and is interacting with a piece of clear sea-glass. Exterior is same sediment applied thinly. Coordinates are written for this sediment glaze. Maps and more information in "Collected Mud Stories", thanks to Amy Bower, a WHOI scientist.
