On our way to Chaco Canyon, we stopped in Hovenweep. I found this weird not rock, although I don’t think it’s pottery either so no harm was done. Super interesting pattern on both sides of this. Also, it weighs a lot lighter than you think it would. That’s why I think this not rock is also not ceramic.
Here’s another shot. I am thinking of using either side of this object to use as a stamp in some ceramic slab work. Maybe I’ll make a bowl or cup. I wish I was better at hand-building because then that would make this future piece even more meta. I’ll update the post with a link when I get to it.
Also, I recommend checking out Chaco Canyon some time for a spiritual getaway from the world. Hiking was really nice there as well as camping. Not too cold and the views are breathtaking.
