IX Cocida en la "Rajoleria de Can Frigola"

Cada dos años se pone en funcionamiento el horno del Mas Plaja de Fitor.

From 26.10.19 to 03.11.19

This activity takes place every two years and consists of recovering the traditional process of baking tiles in the Gavarres by working the old tile oven of the Mas Plaja de Fitor, one of the best preserved in the area. The objective of the initiative is to revive and publicise this technique, which disappeared with the arrival of industrial furnaces.

In November of 2003 Forallac recovered the traditional process of baking tiles in the Gavarres by re-operating the old tile oven of Mas Plaja de Fitor, one of the best preserved in the area. The objective of the initiative was to revive and publicise this technique, which disappeared with the arrival of industrial furnaces.

The baking was promoted by the ceramicist and neighbour from Fonteta, Josep Matés, following the model started by the Festa de la Carbonera, in the line of recovery of our traditions. Matés had the collaboration of the tilemaker of Regencós, Joan Ferrer, one of the few professionals who still faithfully followed the traditional process of making and baking tiles. Ferrer contributed 50 percent of the baking of the sturdy craft made tiles. The rest of the stage was completed with pieces of pottery from various potters.
