I had quite the surprise today at Cider Days where I was selling my new apple bakers and other “foodie” ceramics. I was taking a break and walked over to the food vendors, and a friend said to me, “did you see your pottery over there at the wood fired pizza oven?” I looked expecting to see pottery, instead I saw my pottery shards built into the oven! All I could say was, “wow!”
Earlier this year I wanted to get rid of a bunch of my bad pots that I had smashed for the shard pile. I boxed them up in small boxes and put them up for free on Craig’s List. (I had five calls the first day.) I gave the boxes to three different people. Well, one of those people was one of the owner’s of “The Bakers Oven”, a mobile Wood Fired Pizza & Catering company of Colrain, MA. Co-owner, Daniel built this whole thing himself. I think he would make a good kiln builder!
What a cool concept… a mobile wood fired pizza oven! So if you’re local, and you want to have them cater an event for you, here is the contact info. firstname.lastname@example.org
