- Anthropocene Pot.
Inspired by geological time and finding fossils while out hiking in the desert, this pot imagines a canyon wall in a very, very distant future marking our current geological age. Made to resemble desert rocks, mimicking the structure and surface of a canyon wall, capturing its solidity and fragility. It feels like a rock.
I sculpted a cracking and fragmented facade with loose rocks, fossilized bones and mossy patches.
This pot measures 5" tall, the rim is 4.25" in diameter and 5.25" at its widest point. It is made with food safe glazes so it can be used as a serving dish, a large bowl, a plant pot (with no drainage holes) or a vase.
Made with stoneware clay and high fired to 2345 degrees fahrenheit (cone ten). The interior is glazed in a speckled warm grey with a green tone. The mostly raw clay exterior is punctuated with vibrant glazes.
Hand washing is recommended, although occasional dishwasher cleaning is fine.
