As per usual, I'm here to get dirty and show a bunch of people how to make a functional oven out of mud and some salvaged materials
Laying the insulative layer, old bottles make great air pockets in a bed a slip-coated sawdust.
Starting the cob
Laying the hearth floor with fire bricks
the sand dome form
the arched doorway
we also build benches into either side of the oven and integrate existing fence posts into the structure
straw-clay for insulation
sculptural cob holds it in
almost to the top!
Carrie is going to do decorative earth plaster once the oven is dry.
We enjoy pizza the first night!
