Didianne Leusink and Judith Reijnders hosted a workshop around the earliest firing technique for ceramics: the pit fire. A two day, physically demanding, collaborative process, merging artistic practice with elemental forces.

I was invited to join and expand the philosophy behind Kamp Vuur (Camp Fire) through cooking. After building and burying the big fire, we gathered around a smaller one to explore cooking methods using fire and clay.
