Fuego Fire Vuur
Video of Pit Fire
From ancient times fire has gathered people around its transformation properties; it provides heat, food, and stories. Fire is a crucial element for the ceramic process because it transforms organic and fermenting clay into an inert crystallized material called ceramics.
Pit firing is probably the first pottery firing technique known to humans. This video is a register of my first attempt, that was made in collaboration with K37 (Kunstwerkplaats Arnhem) and Rowena Buur.
