Glenn Browns wonderful painting 'We all succumb to the molten core'. Currently at the Laing Art Gallery, Newcastle.
Field testing my new homemade hobo stove. This is a great bit of kit. Its best with the opening facing a breeze so the fire can be fed with oxygen. It was relatively easy to light with the Tinder sticks, or 'Maya' sticks. When feathered these light quickly and burn with a fierce flame. I took along my own wood to get the fire going but used birch bark and local twigs as tinder.
