Many Worlds In One - 22698C

Many Worlds In One, 22698C, 1998. 

This platter came out of the second firing I ever did with this series. I had only thrown 4 disks/platters. Everything else in the firing was handbuilt, almost like square or rectangular trays. I don't have many images of the rectangular pieces. I may have to spend some time this coming month trying to get new images made of them. It is exciting seeing the earliest pieces, because the ideas were so fresh. Nothing had become expected. Each platter was such a new experiment. The uncertainty bordered on insanity. The loss rates exceeded 90%. But, there was such a phenomenal learning curve happening that it was heady. Each successful platter gave birth to ten more of which one of two might survive.
