“Kiln and moon”
New work imformation
Heavy rain at last year,
Water accumulated the top of the chimney and it was damaged so i remade it.
As the shape of the chimney became smart,
The whole firing has changed considerably.
About 3 days of firing,
A fire rising on the top of the chimney and the moon in the sky were in line.
And then the wind blew and it began to a light rain.
“Is it raining in blessings?”
The feelings of the people who participated in the operation of nature and firing,
It was a moment when it became one.
