Wish you were here - Guy Fawkes Art Performance

Had a fabulous guy fawkes out at Auckland Studio Potters in Onehunga. Every year those pyromaniacs find some new way to fire their pottery creations - last year it was in an ice kiln, the year before in an old car body kiln....this year they built one big sculpture, erected a kiln around it and let it rip. At 9pm we all oohed and aarhed as the kiln was peeled away to reveal the glowing sculpture - all very primal or Druidish to say the least. Also a fabulous way to have a barbeque!

Would've been nice if you'd been there too to join in but here's some photos instead.
P.S. my environmental alter ego was stressing out about all the CO2 emissions but I promised her I'd get them to plant some trees to offset them.

The kiln aglow.

Sparklers join in.

Ta dah! Oooh, aarhh.
