The basement of the oven will be used to guard wood and other stuff, the kitchenette will be part of the working area of the open kitchen to handle food and to boil dye plants (to get pigments) and to manufacture natural soap.

One of the most wonderful things for an artist (even if he work in the field of social sculpture) is to work with natural stones. On one hand its a slowly work but you should taste it and you will enjoy the flow (decelerate yourself in times of burn out).

Thanks to Sonia, Che, Mariella, Margret, Noah, Antje, Corinna and Katrin and all the other hard workers to start this project. We will continue…
