Clary Rose Cob Oven

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!
