This is in Cornelia Troeschs kitchen where we drank green tea and I admired her collection of tea cups and kettles.

This little red jug in the bottom photo is a traditionally Swiss piece of ceramics from Cornelia’s grandparents. In the photo below you can see the technique called „Hörnlimalerei“ used in Switzerland.

At the top of the kitchen shelf you can see earthenware pots made in the Alsace. They are burnt in woodstoves at a very high temperature. They were used to preserve things and they can be frequently found in thrift stores.
