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.

More info: Instagram

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.

Kaylee Hi, I grow map crystals ( and copper sulfate, amag among others) and I have grown some beautiful big, small and colorful specimens. I am dying to know what you use as your red and purple. I use food color and have been trying like hell to locate some amaranth but in the united states it is banned from all commercial use. I have just about gave up as not one company has answered me. I have a nascent site crystalgrowers.webs.com that has some photos and IMUGR you can search under "growing crystals at home" that's all me. I have been experimenting with inorganic and organic stuff to mix with my map and I have some fantastic stuff, but color is hard because of the PH maybe of the MAP? you can't use lakes or oil dispersions, rit dye or many other types of color don't work. Food color does if you you see my stuff but another Is black I am about to try with black food color but I don't think it is black enough. Anyway would love to hear from you or see any other work you have done.
