|Our cats Cattis and Branco love the green metal chairs.|
The 20th of April it will be exactly one year
ago I arrived in Penedo,Brasil.
Yes I insist spelling Brasil in Português.
Penedo is a small city in the Mountains
2 and a half hour drive
from Rio de Janeiro where my
husband and I live and work since
April of last year.
We are more thankful for having both
work and a home in times like this.
|Outdoor shower by the sauna|
It took a long time but
finally the sauna
is all done.
|Our Sauna is in function at last|
We built from scratch and insisted in trying to upcycle a
steel container into a sauna wood fire stove.
It was a bit troublesome and we
made misstakes ,which we now
have corrected thanks to our Blacksmith.
Now the stones are in
place on top and we
fire up almost every
We now have fall in Penedo and
winter is coming.
Winter means lower
temperatures at night and in
the mornings especially since
we are in the mountains at
1000 meter above sea level.
So a sauna comes in good use.
|Borboleta is butterfly in Português. Yes I am learning a new language|
All of the insects and animals and plants
that I encounter for the first time is endless.
The Bucha plant cut open below is part of a
new organic product project.
Planted and now harvesting,
cleaning and drying
called Luffa Cylindrica.
Outdoor indoor feeling
in the living room in our home in
Penedo at Casa da Ilha,
which is what we call our home and studio.
Working with a art project where the Ampula family and I
are creating a gallery space for the art of Eila Ampula.
The art carpet on the wall in our living room in brown is
created by Eila Ampula. Slowly we work towards
being able to open when the Pandemic allows
in the old Studio
now owned by Ampula family.
