Gele Mountain was named for the victory celebration after the God Yu tamed the flood. After Yu the Great tamed the flood, the Gele Mountain was named because of victory celebration. For the May Day holiday, Grass Stage joined some potter friends in the mountain to work with clay, fire, and works. During the 78 hour firing we staged the first version of Gele Mountain. It was a time of work, food, drink, water, fire, clay, wood, body, sound, image, reading, and gossip. A return to the fundamental relations between people, time, material, labor, and nature.
