    I made an interesting observation the other day. The recommended height of the oven door should be about 62.5% of the internal dome height. If you work this out dome height:door height it is 1.6:1 Now the magic ratio or golden mean is 1.618:1 I believe that this is what the Ancient Romans were using for their plans. It is a number that crops up everywhere in nature and was the basis for the design of the Parthenon and Egyptian pyramids. Interesting Hey ?

      The Golden Mean - perfect proportion, in western eyes, definitely derived from nature. The basis of the studies of Leonardo Pisano, known as Fibonacci (Phi: 1.618. The 'phinest' source to the golden section, golden mean, divine proportion, Fibonacci series and phi, 1.618. Explore its application to art, design, life, beauty, mathematics, geometry, stock markets, theology, cosmology and more.)

        James - Many thanks for the links to pictures of various ovens. I am most intrigued by the small image of your avatar - where can I see a larger image of those 2 lovely ovens?
