These pieces explore where and how life came to be on Earth. One theory is that the primordial organic elements were brought by comets crashing into the early Earth's surface, thus seeding our world and starting the whole chain of events leading to all life on Earth.

It's quite a literal piece, the ship-like structure acting as a heat shield protecting the more delicate life pods as it enters Earth's atmosphere. I fell in love with shape and concept that I started a series of them. I've used the natural colors of the clay as the color palette, with the exception of iron oxide and a flashing slip. No glazes are used.
