The piece created for the exhibition is the Paipai pot (image to the right), a pot made from drilling mud obtained from a Sacramento clay manufacture. The clay has gone down a drilling well a few miles deep, in the Bakersfield area, central California. Drilling mud is used to seal the wells, the clay expands and keeps chemicals from infiltrating underground water tables.

The mud we obtained is filled with undisclosed chemicals and oil. The pot could not be fired, as it can't properly dry.
