Ceramics oven at museum

This is a closer view of the oven shown in the photo yesterday. The artisans build a wood fire inside the oven to bake the pottery. With the local clay and a wood burning oven, the ceramics are not as strong as the modern ceramics and china that is fired in a high temperature kiln.

Here is a link to the website for the Ecomuseo de la Cermica Chorotega.

This week we are showing photos of a remote area of Aututaki in the Cook Islands of the South Pacific on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

This reminds me of the ovens in the Southwest.

It looks used. I like the smell of smoking pottery.

Looks exactly like a traditional italian pizza oven! I'm sure a pizza baked in there would be scrumptious!
