It's The Pits
As well as ramekins, I have recently been writing a story about the old brick, pipe and tile works in Oakleigh, Victoria. This key industry was also once prevalent across many area of Melbourne but is now restricted to a couple of super plants. Almost everywhere, the old brickworks have been demolished and the land converted to other uses. Councils used the pits to dump our rubbish for decades and those areas most thankfully have been converted to public open space.
Over the next few months I hope to convert my work so far and publish it on my other blog "IT"S THE PITS". If you get the chance, have a look. It's the pits has heaps of other people using the name, so I had to find a name that was not used, so key in "wuxtiple" and you are there. No, it doesn't have some secret meaning, it's just a combination of letters that wasn't taken. There is not much there at the moment, but be patient.
