Cob oven rebuild – stage I

Leave a comment

On Saturday 30th May, a number of volunteers got together and rebuilt the cob work on the pizza oven in Pearson Park. A supportive dome of sand and an inner layer of cob had already been prepared, and about 15 courses of cob bricks were needed to completely cover it. The outside will now be covered with a clay mixture and allowed to dry off for a few weeks before the sand is scooped out and the oven is lit for its first firing. Hopefully we will get some warm, dry weather that will allow the oven to completely dry out.
