“At the center of the Alchemist’s quest was the legendary Philosopher’s Stone, a magical piece of the perfect Gold, which could immediately Transform any substance it touched into Gold as pure as its own Nature. The Emerald Tablets of the great Hermes Trismegistus spoke of such a marvelous catalyst, and ever since that Secret Knowledge had been made known to certain individuals, the Philosopher’s Stone had become the Symbol of the Alchemical pursuit.
Some alchemists believed that the Stone was somehow hatched like a chick from an egg if one could only find the proper ingredients with which to create the Substance of the shell and the “yolk.” Others believed that the Philosopher’s Stone, that most marvelous of all catalysts, oozed somehow out of the Moon or from one of the Stars and fell to Earth where it solidified into the Magical Stone of Transformation.
it becomes clear that the Philosopher’s Stone wasn’t really a Stone at all. Sometimes the Catalyst of Transmutation is described as a Divine Child, an Angel, a Dragon, an Elixir, a Tincture, or an as-yet unknown Chemical Compound. Many alchemists began to consider that somehow the Philosopher’s Stone was not a thing at all, but a System of Knowledge. Once the Alchemist truly perceived the Reality that lay behind the Symbols, he would achieve an Intellectual and Spiritual level wherein he would become one with the Power that existed within the Mysterious Goal for which he searched so long. Once he understood what the Philosopher’ Stone represented, he would have found it at last - and he would have become one with it.
Many scholars have since insisted that the true Alchemists sought not to turn base metals into Gold, but to Transform the dense material of their Physical bodies into a Spiritually evolved Immaterial Entity. In this perspective, the Philosopher’s Stone becomes the Holy Spirit that Mystically Transmutes humans into True Manifestations of God on Earth.” Johann Daniel Mylius - Philosopher’s Stone, “Opus Medico-Chymicum”, 1618.

For years now people have asked when they'll get to try out Wanda and the spaces we've created at Normal. Only a few more days!
Half + Half is coming to Oculus Quest and Oculus Rift this Thursday :))))
In the September issue of #CeramicsMonthly, MK Bateman discusses how Branan Mercer (@brananmercer) worked towards finding a personal style. He stripped away ornamentation and focused on minimal and Mid-Century Modern–inspired forms, slowly adding in Pop Art–inspired color.

“Home”. What’s it all MEAN?!? 🌸😛💕
My body always knew-
hugs and warmth, un-porous boundaries.
A wooden house,
the gurgling creek,
gel pens 🤩🤩🤩
and soft blankets.
What is that anchored in?
The freedom to be who we are, on our own rhythms,
The safety to be and love and be loved.
My innocent true nature,
loved, and seen.
For a while I couldn’t put my finger on the binding element...
reached for “pseudo” versions of it (ice cream is my favorite. But I digress).
I eventually hit the pulse.
So uncomfortable growing into, mind you.
Lack of dependency.
The synergistic union of real inner mother and father.
The safety of what that calls in, and turns away.⠀⠀⠀⠀
I remembered who I am-
The physical sensation of it.
What is home to you?

Married passion is a quest, in the end, and the lovers are it's heros, fighting along the way demons of their own making and of others, changing identities, carving their initials into each other's hearts. \\
