Getting ready

Our trip to South India is getting closer and closer. We've made some initial plans: Hampi, Cochin, Backwaters, Mysore,... I'd love to go by a 'toy train' to one of the hill stations in the mountains. Two weeks will not be enough!

Straight from the oven

We had a raku day in the art academy today. It was again great fun. These two figures were made by one of the real artists there. He is already more than 80 years old and is just so active creating new things all the time.

My piece was 'baked' by putting it in a carbage bin which was then placed in the oven. Result: black thanks to the smoke. I'd never tried it before, and I think I leave it to this one time.
