When initially researching brick suppliers I seem to recall a lot of refractory products and firebrick in particular being manufactured cheaply in China. There are some options here that include tapered bricks:

Fire Brick, China Fire Brick, Fire Brick Manufacturers, China Fire Brick Suppliers


Look around a bit and I'll bet you can find a number of cost-effective options for bricks. Not so sure about masonry blades though.

Made in China etc may become very popular with New Zelaand & Australian WFO builders as locally available fire bricks are ridiculous prices compare to US equiv. Shipping a few pallets from China would probably be very cost effective.

Thanks guys, I will do some more searching

And Laurentius... Thanks I had tried to get the name Dirty Dog on several sites before here but was always told...already taken, so I ended up with filthymutt. And then to avoid forgetting the name I just used it on every site I'd used afterwards. DirtyDog or even DirtyBobDog were my preferred names just never got to use them!

Darley are the local makers in Melbourne, expensive though.
Some good reading on their site.

My other problem, probably the main problem is that all of these items that I have found so far have only been found through Google and are on sites such as Alibaba, or MadeinChina. Which means these are only wholesale suppliers who list the minimum purchase by the Ton or container load.
I think the bigger challenge will be to find someplace that will sell to me, retail.
Have to wait and see I suppose.

Hi DD,

Do what I did, find a potter or kiln maker or a place that sells ceramic or pottery objects they can direct to sources.

Good idea but I had a bit of a revelation yesterday. Although the Chinese really don't bake anything, they do have Beijing Roast Duck or Peking duck as it's often still "mistakenly" called.
I have seen in nicer BJD restaurants BRICK OVENS! Woo hoo!
this might be easier than I thought!

Yes, that would be good for locating bricks, but most likely clay bricks instead of fire bricks and I'm sure that couldn't help in the location of ceramic fiber boards or blankets. Here a contact from a ceramic fiber manufactory company China, he was very helpful me, but the freight cost was beyond my limit. Ask him where you can purchase his product within China. Amos Guo cyf@jinyuco.com
He may be of help with the bricks also.

Hey Filthy,

Any chance of you posting a pic or two of these Chinese restaurant brick ovens? I'll bet there's a ton of us who would like to see them!

Thanks for the contact. I will look into it for sure. But I doubt the ovens I saw would've been using clay bricks. These were full on brick ovens in 5 star type establishments. Unfortunately they probably were not built on premises. Most likely they were purchased commercial brick ovens which I guess is of no help to me in my search. So I will be looking into your source soon. Thanks
