Kane Fracture Zone: Dense or Sheer Basalt
Versatile material, this Earth. 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).
Two Magmas: One Basalty, One Siliceous
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.
A White Marble as Asteroid Dust Scatters . . . .
10.25"wide x 1.25" high
On porcelain clay, a center of seaglass surrounded by a chatter-patterned area glazed with Earth crust slurry from the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, surrounded by Namibian rock surrounded by a narrow band of sediment from the K-T Band sample. Lavender glaze on the rim was assembled from refined materials and glaze on back is a thin wash of Mid-Atlantic Ridge slurry.

Gulf of Maine: Penobscot & Muscongus Bays
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.
Coverging and Diverging Plates & Snowball Earth (SOLD)
8.5" x 2"
Center of seaglass framed by speckled brown area of subduction sediment from a Costa Rican plate surrounded by a chattered area of Mid-Atlantic Ridge rock slurry. Rim next to words is Namibian rock that, reportedly, proves glaciation at equator 600 to 700 million years ago. Lavender rim overlaps that rock slurry, which is white.
Says, "A white marble, a Snowball Earth -- glaciers riding over drifting continents and friction forces of diving plates".
Folding Fracturing Fissuring at an Accretionary Prism
Says, "Costa Rican accretionary prism subducting, folding, fracturing, fissuring". Rim glaze assembled from refined materials. Center of sea-glass.
Chattered Basalt & Flowing Pumice
Keep clicking for back, side and bigger views. On porcelain, interior is the Havre pumice/mud sample and exterior is a wash of rock slurry from Kane Fracture Zone (a Mid-Atlantic Ridge site) that was used as a stain on a surface chattered by a metal tool jumping on the leather hard wall during the trimming stage of shaping the foot.
Basalt & Pumice: Earth's Insides Are Out
On porcelain, interior brown from Mid-Atlantic Ridge rock slurry framed by Havre volcano sediment. Center of seaglass. Click for larger images to read.
Pumice & Rock Slurry: Earth's Insides are OUT
On porcelain clay, seaglass center surrounded by Mid-Atlantic Ridge and Havre volcano pumice/mud. Rim and foot of glazes assembled from refined materials. Both places are generative, meaning they are actively reforming from thermal forces, although their chemistries are very different.
Clay in Motion from Land & Beneath the Seafloor
Keep clicking for back, side and bigger views. On porcelain, interior is the Havre sample and exterior is a wash of Mid-Atlantic Ridge rock slurry. Finally! Geological deposits that are glazes that work so well they need no complements of glazes assembled from refined materials.
Fluid pumice-glaze and fluid porcelain that tore as I was throwing and I caught the tears in a way well-suited for the Earth's assymetrical ways of spewing it's molten forms. Learn more about the geophysical investigations of this pumice-mud glaze
