Cob Oven – Our turn!

After working with the project at Marland, we decided to have a go at starting our own cob pizza oven. After building the base out of stone from our site, we laid a heatproof layer by using recycled bricks from the inside of an old storage heater.

Then we made a mound out of silver sand – alias Vesuvius!

The we covered it with wet newspaper so the clay would stick to it – but it didn’t and the clay slip did exactly that – slipped!
back to the drawing board…….
