Aether



AITHER (Aether) was the primordial god of light and the bright, blue ether of the heavens. His mists filled the space between the solid dome of the sky and the transparent mists of the earth-bound air.

In the evening his mother Nox drew her dark veil across the sky, obscuring the ether and bringing night. In the morn his sister and wife Hemera dispersed night's mist to reveal the shining blue ether of day. In the ancient cosmogonies night and day were regarded as elements separate from the sun. Aether may have had shrines in ancient Greece, but he had no temples and is unlikely to have had a cult.

This shallow bowl with bumps - which perfectly hold anything you place on them, is hand build out of cream white stoneware clay, covered with porcelain slip and glaze layers, decorated with matte gold details.
