Fiskars Residency

Yesterday evening I arrived at Fiskars, Finland to start a month's Artist-in-Residence stay.
A flight of under two hours from Copenhagen to Helsinki, bus to the Central Station, one hour's train journey almost due west, a twenty-minute bus ride, and I had arrived. 
This morning I have opened up the studio below the house, located my clay delivery down the hill, looked at the kiln which I am going to fire together with Riita Talonpoika; and now work begins.
