Early signs of autumn.

Some of the trees in my garden have already start to change colour. It is a little bit sad that autumn is on its way, but it is a beautiful time when you have trees around you.

Sun and rain.

Here are some pictures from my bonsai benches a couple of days ago. The sun was shining and suddenly it started to rain. It is beautiful when it happens.

Woodfired kiln.

A couple of weeks ago I joined a workshop where we built a woodfired kiln. It was a relatively small kiln that don´t take up so much space, is easy to fire for one person, and not so expensive to build. And you can get as good effects as in a large kiln.
Hopefully I can build my own kiln soon and start firing!

A lot of discussions in the buildingprocess.

Fire in the hole!

Cone 10 still standing.

Around 1300 degrees celcius.

Unpacking... Exciting, after 10 hours firing and 20 hours cooling down.
