Die Schmelze

"Die Schmelze (molten mass)" is the title of the oven-sculpture built by Berlin based artist Zuzanna Czebatul during her residency in LA 2021.
Its six-ton masonry body is covered in a marbled concrete glaze, produced by the artist in a specially developed process and applied by hand in countless steps. The oven's expansive form can be understood as an inviting gesture - as a place of community it serves for collective baking, dining, and communication.
After its inauguration in Juli 2021 it became the center of the soirées following events like the Barnale .
