A play with whites; interior is shiny, top exterior is matte, lower exterior is Namibian rock powder that reports Earth covered in glaciers 600 million years ago. Aqua seaglass thumbwell.
Of 13 porcelain mugs like this 6 survived -- this needed to be ground at the bottom.

Exterior lower area is the Namibian rock powder that melted into this pattern -- beautiful rivulets, complete with mysterious pinhole voids suggesting something worthy of inquiry. Interior white glaze and aqua seaglass thumbwell.

Four whites: porcelain clay, interior shiny glaze, exterior matte glaze and lower exterior area of melted Namibian "Snowball Earth" rock slurry melted. The last of these displays an unusual variety of smooth to grainy and white to yellowish. Seaglass thumbwell.

Four whites: porcelain clay, interior shiny glaze, exterior matte glaze and lower exterior area of melted Namibian "Snowball Earth" rock slurry melted. The last of these is the exterior lower area, smooth and slightly translucent. Seaglass thumbwell.

Four whites: clay body, interior shiny glaze, exterior matte glase and the Namibian rock that tells us that Earth was glaciated about 600 MYA. What I wonder (and search for topics on this including National Geographic's article, is whether it Earth would have appeared as a white marble from NASA's images, like the blue marble we've now come to know. Was it slushy or icey and was it covered with dust? Aqua seaglass thumbwell.
BTW -- fussy clay, unpredictable flow off glaze -- I spend days making 13 and only had 6 usable after I needed to chisel them off the kiln shelves. Therefore the price.
