Wood-Fire Conference: For the first time in Europe: 2 -5 September 2010

In 1999 Owen Rye stated for the US and Japan: “…that woodfire has become mainstream… There is in contrast a lack of interest in Europe and one can ponder why this is so.”
The organisers of the Wood-Fire Conference do not wonder, but want to change it. From the 2nd to the 5th of September 2010 the conference will take at Bröllin in north-east Germany. 3 days of woodfire-mania with fire, smoke, exhibitions, competitions, demonstrations and, not to forget, presentations.
An international event not only for wood-firers, but also for collectors, gallery owners, students and teachers. The conference is designated to 4 themes: ¬†international overview, woodfiring and education, woodfiring and environmet, woodfiring aesthetics. The Log Book Award as well as special students rates in connection with the possibility to camp directly at the conference should attract also young people. The pre-conference workshops will be held by Lowell Baker (USA, sawdust injection burner), Paul Davis (AUS, Bourry-Box firing), Karin Flurer-Br√ľnger (D, paper-kiln), Stefan Jakob (CH, Raku kiln building) and Owen Rye (AUS, kiln building of the “Little Ripper Kiln”). The fee of 250,- EUR (210,- until the 31st July) includes full meals during the conference (but not the workshops).
