However, during ancient times it was women who worked the clay.
Our story begins during the prehistoric Ice Age around 27,000 BPE, (Before the Present Era) in a small section of land in what is now known as Czechoslovakia.
Their job was essential to the sustenance of their families, clans and homesteads.
In this frozen tundra there existed a green oasis, void of ice.
Her kiln had an underground flue that was fueled by bones; this firing technique created the rich black carbon surface on the beautiful six-inch forms.
To imagine a woman firing a kiln almost thirty thousand years ago is a phenomenal concept to grasp!
