A reminiscence : many decades ago, we were in the courtyard of the International Ceramic Studio in Kecskemét, struggling with the elements, days and nights were passing. We were building kilns : we wanted to create high-fire ceramics, glazes, artistic works and burn them in these kilns. In this work Fred Olsen helped us out with his book, and also in person when he built his newly designed furnaces in our yard.
