Rockie, the Bake Oven Takes Form

Greg has returned to last autumns bake oven project at the Humble Hearth. The Dry Stone foundation to a large concrete pad will soon be covered with a dome of mash of clay and straw.

Later next week family, friends and staff at the Edge will have a chance to make old-school fire bricks by dancing in the mortar to mash the mortar to the appropriate consistency.

Later, bricks will be formed and laid up against a wood dome form to create the dome. Still later, a chimney and earth roof will cap the entire structure.

Stay tuned for images as the whole thing takes shape!
