Description

Alchemical Jar by Derek Kasper

Alchemy, noun

the medieval forerunner of chemistry, based on the supposed transformation of matter. It was concerned particularly with attempts to convert base metals into gold.

 

The “Alchemical Jar” was essentially a process of reverse archaeology whereby the imagined medieval jar had some evidence of successful transformation to gold within, and evidence of age and the corrosive properties of the transformation, without.
