Default Re: Question: Has Anyone Ever Used Cob for the Stand?

I have been very involved and have helped build mudbrick houses, and I know the strength of a good mudbrick,( as long as they are made right in the first place) .
I have no doubt the ones we are going to be using will do the job just fine.
Just to add to your confusion ..lol

I once built a pottery kiln out of mud bricks in Carisbrook, Vic. It worked ok. We got it so hot, around 1100 C I would estimate and the inside sheared off in melted sheets from the high iron content in the clay, but the pottery was not affected. Mud is a great insulator. At our temps (450 C max) it's refractory enough.
Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.

Actually mudbrick doesn't confuse me all. I've done a good bit of reading about it as a result of all reading I've done about cob.

I'm sure everyone here will be surprised that there's anything that doesn't confuse me...

The very first ovens in history are just basically cob.
