Rememberance Day or Veterans day
at 11o'clock on the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918 the guns stopped firing, the First World War came to an end.
Thousands of graves in military cemetaries, overwhelming sad places.
I remembered them when I saw the garden of Extinct Plants at Chaumont-sur-Loire last September.
We bumped into budding ceramic artist Jan Marechal by accident a few years ago in his pop-up studio in Hasselt - Belgium. I was happy to see more of his work last September during the art event Alternate Current.

After a sunny, warm and gorgeous indian summer the first chilly wind and drizzle makes one long for a nice and cozy fire.
Just the time to show some pictures of 'The Palace of Ideal Chimneys', a funky and crazy installation.
entirely set up with waste material
a swivelling hearth and chimney in the centre of the room (I didn't know I could move it until we were gone)
the next room, a crazy kitchen
a bedroom that will keep out the icy winds
the sanitary installation
I simply can't keep my eyes from the stunning effect in the first room
the old walls with flaking paint and plaster and stripped wall paper are breathtaking
can't get enough of it
