Today we are going to unleash the story of Chaos.
No, I don’t mean your child’s untidy room, that time before your first cup of coffee or even the US election. We are talking about the mythless god of the Greeks, the progenitor of all.
Last week, we told the story for the raku pottery vase, ‘Tears of Uranus’, which you can read here, and the week before it was the story for ‘Gaia’s Revenge‘. It’s no wonder those two come from Chaos!
Today’s raku pottery vase ‘Chaos‘, tells the tale the story of everything, but also nothing, of the void, and how everything sprung from it. And it may explain those days we all have when the unexpected keeps cropping up.
It’s not easy existing in a cosmic void, particularly if you feel like you are alone in the universe. Fortunately, for most of us, we will never know how that really feels. But for Chaos, it was the only thing they would know for some time.
Chaos existed for much time in a state of disorder, at least according to us humans. One day Chaos started feeling different than usual. They wondered if they had eaten too many sub atomic particles and space junk.
Chaos definitely began to feel more and more strange, until suddenly, a cosmic egg emerged from them. At first Chaos dismissed this occurrence as simply just more Chaos, but it was from this egg that all elements of our world would originate from.
Cosmic egg, it does the universe good. You can read the story of another cosmic egg, from a different culture here!
That our Earth comes from Chaos, might explain a lot of things from our history and that are even going on today. That science so many years later would describe the origin of the universe coming from a single point in a void, makes me wonder if the Greeks knew something we did not.
Let us know what you think of our vase story this week, and what you thought of our raku pottery vase, Chaos, in the comments below!
Stunning vase. Chaos, a good theory indeed of how our strange existence began. It had to somehow. The Greeks seemed to know a thing or two we did not.
the beauty of the unexpected
A beautiful vase and story. Chaos is a fascinating force that propels us into creativity, growth, and order. 😀
I love Chaos theory and the Mandlebrot set…..
Beautiful vase! Perfect for Autumn. I’m very acquainted with chaos. 🙂
Beautiful vase! I always did believe that chaos, the state of disorder, was meant to bring forth new order. This story strengthens my belief 🙂
Very beautiful. I like the gradient of the different colours moving up the neck of the vase ^_^
A wonderful rendition of the story of the cosmic egg! 😂 And a lovely vase too!

Chaos, a beautiful vase and a fascinating backstory. “Always remember you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think and twice as beautiful as you’d ever imagined. Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself” – Rumi
