DESCRIPTION (ENG)

In the movie “Howl’s moving castle”, Calcifer is the fire demon powering Howl’s castle. His magic not merely enables the castle moving around but keeping the people in the castle away from the war zone. In our world, city is expanding rapidly while more and more villages are shrinking. Villagers of Lai Chi Wo moved to the city to make a living. Why not build a pottery kiln in Lai Chi Wo? Same as Calcifer, it powers the village to sustain. The pottery kiln is proposed to be built with the local material. Villagers can make use of the pottery kiln and produce ceramic tiles for repairing the traditional Hakka houses. Since clay is the local material which does not require any transportation, this organic material is surely an environmental friendly option. The pottery kiln is a gesture of sustainable living style in the village instead of a symbol of rusty life.

在電影<哈爾的移動城堡>中,憑著卡西火的魔法,令哈爾的城堡在大地上移動,遠離戰地並保護了哈爾城堡裡的人。現實裏,城市快速擴張延至鄉郊;從前荔枝窩的村民移居到城市裡生活。給荔枝窩建造一個窯,猶如哈爾城堡的卡西火,延續這土地的生命。計劃運用在地物料搭建石窯,燒製泥土造成瓦片,成為自然建築的材料,甚至修復村裡的客家房子。跟農鄉生活一樣,石窯所代表的不是落後、簡陋,而是永續的生活方式。
