Perspectives Title: “Bowl of Cthulhu.” Inspired by the short story written by HP Lovecraft in 1926, this stoneware piece measures 14” in height by 12” in diameter and combines 2 wheel- thrown elements with hand-built accents to simulate the tentacled monstrous “Old One” referenced frequently in the Lovecraft mythos. The bowl is glazed with Ancient Copper (AMACO, Indianapolis), which develops metallic crystals as it cools from a firing temperature of over 2200° F. The process is somewhat difficult to control, and the uncertainty associated with each opening of the kiln is an enjoyable injection of entropy into the highly structured life of a physician.

The bowl is glazed with Ancient Copper (AMACO, Indianapolis), which develops metallic crystals as it cools from a firing temperature of over 2200° F. The process is somewhat difficult to control, and the uncertainty associated with each opening of the kiln is an enjoyable injection of entropy into the highly structured life of a physician.
