This is a decorative chalice, hand made from fine silver using metal clay. This section shows the frightened faces of people fleeing the backlash of Mother Earth. On one side is the wildfire, on the other is the tsunami. Water is behind them and the wind whips their hair and adds to their despair. There is no escape from the natural disaster that they have caused. Drinking Vessels, Chalice, Mixed Media Artists, Tsunami, Metal Clay, Absinthe Fountain, Despair, Whips, Mother Earth

This is a decorative chalice, hand made from fine silver using metal clay. This section shows mountains in the distance with dead trees in the foreground. On one side is the hurricane, on the other side is raging wildfire. The sky is dark and menacing. Tendrils of branches from the main tree reach up and small patches of green life can be seen but they are few. Green Life, Fine Silver, Branches, Distance, Dead

This is a decorative chalice, hand made from fine silver using metal clay. This section shows a city overwhelmed by water. On one side of the city is a wall of water cascading down – a tsunami. On the other side is wind in the form of a hurricane. Water swirls around the buildings and the glow of fire can be seen behind the structures standing out from the surface. Some of these structures are already damaged and breaking under the weight of the water and the effects of the fire. Wall Of Water, Water Swirl, Overwhelmed

This is a decorative chalice, not intended for use as a drinking vessel. The chalice form  allowed me to present an apocalyptic narrative in the round with a progression from the current condition of the world to a potential dystopian future. The story starts on the base and progresses up the stem and onto the base of the bowl. The bowl features the legend "Humankind’s greed and lust for power at the expense of the planet that sustains it will be the cause of its downfall" around the lip. Dystopian Future, Greed, Apocalyptic, Lust, Stem
