"Inside Sapphire"
2002
Geochemical sculpture, crystal formations on ceramics. 
12"h x 24"w x 4"d.

"Zinc silicate glaze temperature is maintained
at 2000 fahrenheit for several hours to induce
crystal formation."

"Geocore"
2001
Glass and ceramics: geochemcal sculpture
10"h x 4"wd

Hot blown glass is infused with crystalline 
ceramic glazes, the reaction is magnified 
and encased.

"Flower Geyser"
2002
Calcite formations on ceramics.
12"h x 20"wd

Calcium silicate drips from the ceiling of 
a ceramic sculpture and as these glazes 
start to melt and dribble into formations, 
they are solidified by sudden cooling in 
the kiln.

2002
Ceramics: geochemical sculpture, enlarged 
transparency displayed as lightbox.
6"h x 8"w
    
Zinc silicate glaze temperature is maintained 
at 2000 fahrenheit for several hours to induce 
crystal formation.

"Gestation"
2002

8"h x 10" w x 4"d 
 
Salts are trapped into molten glass and 
release gases which blow the bubble, 
displayed on ceramic rocks.
