Geometric Ceramic And Homegrown Crystal Rings By Kaylee Findley
Geometric, ceramic and crystal rings, inspired by chemical reactions and processes such as: distillation, precipitation, metal displacement, and crystallization. While carefully considering the methodology used and material processes I established a strong bond between the processes used during chemical reaction and the ones explored during the making of the rings. I wanted to achieve a harmonic juxtaposition of the sharp, geometric rings against the organic crystals that grow on the surface of the ring. The rings are made from a selection of ceramics – white earthenware, black stoneware and ming porcelain. While the crystals are home grown using a base chemical compound called Monoammonium Phosphate and various other chemical compounds which difference the unique colouring.

white earthenware and ming porcelain: This first batch was bisque fired to allow the colouring to penetrate the porous ceramic.
Black stoneware (hard fired)
Aluminium Potassium Sulphate crystals
Ming porcelain (hard fired) to allow the porcelain to retain its crisp whiteness.
