Galacier Bay Alaska - Four Inlets Named
Galacier Bay Alaska - Four Inlets Named

9" high x 6" wide

This mixture of sediments from Glacier bay is gritty when it's unfired -- so gritty that I can hear a scraping sound as the material flows off my brush but then, in the kiln, it smooths out into this.

Mud Patch
Mud Patch

8" wide x 7" high

South of Martha's Vineyard is this area known as "mud patch" where the sea-bed contains fine-grained sand, applied here and swiped with a wooden stick to reveal thick and thin evidence. Area surrounding words has wisps of eel grass and the salty blush it leaves as a trace arround the glaze from it's ash. Glass center. Shiny interior glaze is from land-based clay and wood ash.

White on White on White (Fixed Dripe)
White on White on White (Fixed Dripe)

Area under words is the Namibian rock, dripping and branching as it moves over the porcelain clay. Interior is shiny white, top exterior is matte white. Sea-glass dimple in lid.

Reduced price because glaze dripped and I filled an area with epoxy putty.

Vast Space Deep Time ~ Two Rocks and a MUD
Vast Space Deep Time ~ Two Rocks and a MUD

7" high x 5" wide

Wide K-T Band area at shoulder wows me with how it looks like a circulating dust band. I apply the sediment evenly and what happens after that is a gift from the fire--this one has been well-blessed.

Rocks and Bones
Rocks and Bones

5.75" high x 5" wide

Namibian rock is the white exterior glaze--there are no bones except I used the word because the porcelain clay seems like bones to me. The hardness, the sound. Interior glaze assembled from refined materials. Gold leaf applied after firing.

Chimera
Chimera

I began this in daylight and continued in the moonlight one balmy July evening.

When a friend named it "Chimera" I researched and found one meaning as "A fire-breathing she-monster usually represented as a composite of a lion, goat, and serpent."

Indian Ocean Branches Rising
Indian Ocean Branches Rising

9.25" x 6.25"

This sample is the first I got that came with a date of 30 million years (more or less) as predicted by a technician who, foraminifera, by foraminifera, sorted the shells with a paintbrush while looking under a microscope, determining their age by visual inspection.

Sometimes the glazed result is dry and crusty so this one I particularly welcome but moreso, there's a subtle dynamic that appears on one side where, after applying the glaze, I dotyted it with a matte white glaze which, during the firing, made detours for the flowing glaze. The sediment does drip downward while, as it does, it crystallizes and rises.
