Outdoor Fireplace Pictures Courtesy of http://www.hza.no/
I just found these images of an outdoor fireplace designed by Haugen / Zohar, an architectural firm from Trondheim, Norway. I have to say I wish I had enough space to build this. It’s just such a magical place! Meant for nightly campfires, and story telling; it looks like something out of a children’s fairy tale. It’s constructed of short wooden pieces of reused wood from a construction site; set onto a concrete foundation. Inspired by Norwegian turf huts it bears a striking similarity to the Native American Tee Pee. It’s design is simple and elegant; working to funnel the air up and, all on its own. Amazing!
Ever year we go to the Renaissance Fair it’s been a tradition with me and my husband Rich since we first started dating. This year we really have been waiting and looking forward to it and yesterday we got to go! We went to the fair outside Charlotte NC and it was so much fun. I had some delicious chocolate covered strawberries and browsed through the shops. One of the best parts of the fair this year was the demos, we watched Rich Robertson an amazing potter from Cricket Hill Pottery throw a tea kettle on his kick wheel. It seemed absolutely effortless and his work is just amazing. We also saw my favorite show The London Broil show. It features Louis Skaradek, Matt Conolly, and Duncan Pace who are accomplished jugglers, who flaming wands while cracking pop culture jokes, it really feels like there flying of the cuff but it’s an amazing show!
