We realised this recycled clay oven over the summer 2015 in a secret garden of Berlin.
90% of the materials used were picked up in the garden from old demolished walls or harvest in the bins, streets and hidden places of Berlin. The clay we used comes from biolehm.de. Thanks to them for the generous advice and technical support.
Big thanks to our community and helpers.
Much love to the planet Earth.

Citing the definition for democrius: “Subtle Matter > atoms of air (as opposed to those of the Earth).” It was Descartes that stated the same idea: “Subtle Matter > Matter that pervades the Earth”…
Love and Harmony…
