The building of the word Salt started in March. I initially had a rectangular clay basin of 18 x 2.5 meters. I had to fill some of its spaces and to dig others to write the three letters of 6 x 2.75 meters each. Then I had to rehabilitate the water heating circuit which precedes the word, which means to rebuild bridges, to coat them with clay and in the end to prepare the bottom of the basin. Once the circuit was done, the word was dried up in order to remove the accumulated mud and get smooth bottoms only composed of clay. The word's construction and preparation ended at the beginning of June. Initially, only the "L" and the "E" produced salt. In late June, the water had reached a high salinity level and so every letter produced ten or fifteen kilos of salt per day. The rains of July had slowed the crystallization of the salt several times. With the whole word, the production amounted to 400 kilos of salt and a hundred and fifty kilos of “fleur de sel”.
