Magic of fire Dauphine Scalbert' s kiln in Lain (89- Yonne) Firing May 2003...  
The kiln swallows its meal of enamelled pots. A few weeks', and sometimes a few months' work... Patience while the kiln dries out slowly - several days of close attention.

Thursday evening. We brick updoor that will isolate us - more or less - from the inner hell that is already building up.

...my first hypnotic experience before a wood-kiln !



The piles of wood are there, ready to be ingurgitated by our ogre who will gobble up half a cord before next morning...
