|The dome is ready. Inside is still filled with sand.|
We built it in clay, mixed with sand, in three layers. Every layer needed drying time... But in october and November, in Belgium, there's not much drying. So we started to dry it out by firing it up, on the pic you can see we put a party tent over it.
The tent didn't make it... Beginning of November the wind decided to take it. Lost a tent, but it didn't collapse the oven.
|Heating up to +325°C|
Three minutes baking time, slightly burned at the bottom and sides, but delicious.... I was tired as hell, after 6 hours of baking and 80 pizza's later. The whole school had pizza.
This was a project that will last long in the memories, I'm sure. Check out the building plans at: clayoven.wordpress.com
I will set up a blog on wordpress with more pict on this. I'll keep you posted.
