Exterior Design -- Adding a Mosaic - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Exterior Design -- Adding a Mosaic

    my wife, eva, has begun covering the dome with mosaic designs. i have posted some pictures of the start of this huge task at <http://www.cpsusa.com/ebay/pompeiioven.htm>www.cpsusa.com/ebay/pompeiioven.htm*and will be updating them from time to time as we progress.

    Hi Robert,
    Nice fish! How about a giant octopus sitting up top with the
    tentacles coming down all around the oven!? They could even be
    holding a knife and fork!! (jus' throwing out an idea at ya!)Or maybe
    a lobster or two! Anyway, looks great. What are you going to do for a
    finish to the wall on the right? (I think a big wave mosaic would
    look cool!)
    Best to you, Rick

      thanks rick,

      a pink flamingo will be on wall to the right. we are tacky and proud of it ... eva has already planned out lobsters and crabs and shrimp and on the top i think we'll have a turtle. we considered the octopus idea and who knows maybe we'll come back around to it.

      i wanted to have an island on top of the dome with a big palm tree growing out of the top of the dome. and then the chimney structure was going to be a volcano with red lava flowing down the front of the oven with little terrified mosaic villagers fleeing before it. but as so often happens... i was overruled....

      eva messengered me that she finished the "girl" seahorse today. i'll try to post an updated picture tomorrow.

        Way cool! (Don't want to be a wet blanket, but the surface is not a
        hemisphere but is actually larger than a hemisphere of the same
        diameter <grin>)

          • #6
