Atelier Maracuja - artist Athena van Dongen

firing



The smaller sculptures fit comfortably in my kiln, but the larger ones are a challenge. I designed a small updraft kiln which can be built, used and dismantled as needed. The firing process for one piece is a long, continuous 32 hours. Feeding the fire with wood through the night turns this into a special ceremony marking the birth of a new sculpture.
