At pottery jungle, on a bright Sunday morning on 5 August 2007, we had our usual monthly breakfast at the treehouse. Elke, the German scientist who was on 4-month sabbatical joined us on the raku firing, my 12-year old son also joined us and he was so lucky to have the opportunity to do his very first raku firing......
