Hello to everyone!

Pietro sent me the file with all the recipes you guys used for the soda firing workshop. You can download it and add more recipes, if you want, and see that everything is written correctly. And, please, post this again if you change something! Thanks



Thank you Roman.

unloading the kiln.

Here all together ready to unload the kiln… the human chain!


And, of course, we started a new discussion about the results obtained in this firing. For sure the temperature inside was right as you can see here:


And after all the considerations we prepared the new works for firing and then the kiln was loaded again.

As you already know because of the ash cloud a lot of airplane has been closed for several days, so four artist from didn’t have the chance to come over here because their flight were cancelled and all the trains were already booked. But the 5th day Lena from Finland arrived after three days of travelling. Here trying to explain what happened when she was not here:
