We never give up playing – the old and the young:
SUPERGAMES – PSYCHOLOGICAL – LOGICAL – TABLE – POLITICAL – SPORTS – CHILDREN'S – CARDS – BUSINESS – EDUCATIONAL – MOBILE – ROLE - PLAYING - ADULT – DICE – TELEVISION – life full of games.
Hey, you're there, what game are you playing now?
The desire to play, according to J. Huizing, the creator of game theory, is our most natural nature, having experienced many transformations over time. Once upon a time, there were clear boundaries between a game and a ritual, between rest and everyday activities, today we transform a game into life, and life into...
The appearance of a wood kiln (train kiln) in the garden, as a game – arranged of chamotte bricks, but unmoved, unencumbered by metal, and when the works are being burnt, the fire is visible through the cracks and the view of the furnace becomes similar to a skyscraper at night.
The prototype kiln is a 1998 wood-fired kiln designed by J. Neeley (Utah State University) based on a Japanese furnace. The design of this kiln encourages ash deposits on the pots and creates natural ash surfaces similar to those created in Anagama kilns. Kiln chamber is 50x80x50 cm. Unglazed and glazed works are fired in this kiln. The kiln is easy to fire, it creates very little black smoke, and reaches temperature easily to 1300º C.
