For more about "Havre Eruption"

K-T Boundary about 65 million years ago contains iridium anomaly from an asteroid impact thought to have caused dinosaur extinction. That's the "dust" and the "crust" is slurry I got from cutting rocks drilled from the Mid-Atlantic Ridge.

The Costa Rican Accretionary Prism sediment has been ground by tectonic plates scraping against each other. It's fine-grained and after it's applied to the clay it dries and contracts and peels up like a dried riverbed cracks but then, in the kiln, it melts and relaxes back down. More here.

For another glimpse into this sample, visit Galapagos.

No glaze but that which came from the inside of Earth, exploded pumice that broke through the ocean's surface, flew about and then settled back onto the seafloor where it continued morphing until humans picked it up, tightened the bucket lid and delivered it to me. Now it's melted pumice/mud on a chattered clay surface--evidence of silica-rich magma.

Glass thumbwell.

Note the effects of using materials on vertical surfaces - understand why I mostly use sediments on the top third of mugs? I used to get rid of the losses, now I keep them close by to learn from their lessons. The string is double the size now.
