Hi again, Norbert.
We have done lots of interesting work this year and I am planning to
share some photos about some projects. It is just that I am always
behind posting stuff at my web site for at least half a year.
Here are some pictures of an outdoor community oven built for the Chimney Court Children's Garden at the Evergreen Brickworks http://ebw.evergreen.ca/
- a former brick factory converted to a place to host a national
environmental organization- Evergreen, a farmers market, outdoor and
indoor educational areas, meeting and event space, restaurants, and
dedicated to greening of our cities - a pretty cool site full of
activities, featuring old brick tunnel kilns and a leaning brick
The oven is a 48" diameter dome. Finish is reclaimed red brick and
natural field stone called Pennsylvania Chicken Stone. Top is done in
waterproof stucco. It is my design; built by three Stovemaster masons:
myself, Sergei Kouznetsov and Matt Froud.
The oven is used in their children educational program and is planned
to be also used for different outdoor parties and cooking classes. I
have done my first paid oven cooking class for the Evergreen staff
using this oven :) During the class that covered the entire process
from firing to using the oven for various types of food, we did pizza,
smoked trout, grilled vegetables, grilled chicken, roasted vegetables
salad, and babaganouch.
