Trilobite Menorah

This is a black slab menorah with green trilobites.  The trilobites are molded from a fossil.  Since clay shrinks when fired, I made smaller versions by making an impression of the fossil in clay, using the impression as a mold, and then making an impression from the smaller trilobite.  Each iteration was a little more distorted and became unrecognizable after the fourth time.
