In April of 2010 the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajökull began a series of explosive eruptions of ash which disrupted air travel and the environment. Hundreds were evacuated and thousands watched as huge ash plumes erupted 8 kilometers into the sky for days on end. Across the globe in Mexico City, the jewelry symposium Walking the Gray Area was coming to an end. Eyjafjallajökull stranded 18 jewelers who had attended the event in Mexico City. Under That Cloud is their response to these unexpected days spent there.
