"Any intellectually conceived object is always in the past and therefore unreal. Reality is always the moment of vision before the intellectualization takes place. There is no other reality."  Robert Pirsig (b.1928)

Illustrated is a porcelain teabowl with an etched design under my haiyu glaze. The design, though similiar to the "landscapeman" design is in fact based on a drawing on a chalkboard in a scientists office from a 1950's science-fiction movie. The design always reminded me of two solar systems or universe intersecting and the resulting shockwave that occurs when this would happen. It would seem to be a good fit under the flowing and iridescent effects of the haiyu glaze.
