Another oven is born…. clay, stone, salvaged metal and human love come together.
We built this oven for a 120 person gathering called “Manos en La Tierra” in the forest of Catamarca province, Argentina. Eva and I were part of the preparation crew and had a week to build an oven that would bake bread and other goodies for the month-long gathering. “Manos en La Tierra” occurred in October of 2007 and was a gathering that attempted to resemble a Rainbow Gathering but with a focus on down-to-earth solutions to making a better world. We camped in this almost untouched forest and created a natural infrastructure to give workshops, share information about sustainability, healing, permaculture, etc., and provided each other with continuous artistic creation.
