Berkelium

BK 97 A radioactive rare earth metal named after the University of California  at Berkeley. Apparently, when exposed, it tends to accumulate in the skeletal system. Therefore I choose the skull and cross bones. The piece is constructed of a couple of works I didn’t like and then over dyed.

Tellurium

by Tricia Coulson

TE 52 It was discovered in 1782 by Franz Muller von Reichenstein. The name originated from the Greek word tellus meaning earth.  It is found in certain plants such as garlic and overexposure to tellurium results in garlic breath. This work is pieced with several black and white fabrics, then discharged and over dyed.
