When I was one

Been spending time with the amazing images at NASA.gov. Your tax dollars at work! This is the dark side of the moon, dark as in not seen or not known. With one side always facing earth, the other has been unseen since the advent of life on earth. Dark side until 1959 when it was first seen. I was one year old.

Early commission prototype

Commission prototype for nesting bowl set. It’s too small but really liking how eccentric this ended up. Very non platonic so to speak.

Half size prototype

A half size prototype, shape and scale rather than surface treatment. Four sided 8.5″ tall vase with color slip surface, stoneware.

Saturn, moons, plates, & life itself

Being interested in self organizing systems and space images I’ve been looking at Saturn’s moon Enceladus, one of two moons being considered as possible places life might have arisen.

This was a sketch for a platter using images from the cassini spacecraft, just now finishing up it’s mission. The black areas indicate areas not imaged, these inspired this one.
