From Cruise Knorr191 that tested long coring equipment.
About 27" high, glazed with sediment taken at Bermuda Rise in 1998 (neck area) and September 2007 (belly and bottom areas.)
The impulse to make this came from two feelings: first, that I want the communal nature of discovery to be celebrated in as many forms as possible and secondly, that my history with Bermuda Rise sediment proved that it's beautiful glaze. So I offered to make this so people on the ship could celebrate their own work, with the materials and processes that are my work.
It takes so many stories to tell the whole truth.
