Morning All
I started my oven yesterday, and getting ready for the clay but I can't fined any. I live in Doncaster England, any help very welcome

Re: Morning All
I attended a course on oven building some time back and we built both clay and a refractory concrete one, the effort that goes into a clay oven and a refractory oven is very little, the clay ovens last just a few years and are maintenance heavy.

Re: Morning All
Thank you for your response, what do you mean by refractory concrete. can you make an oven from cement, what did you make yours from, if you don't mined me asking

Re: Morning All
My first oven was made from refractory concrete, a high heat concrete not the sort you buy from the builders yard.

The build is here.

The second oven I am doing for myself is from fire brick.

The build is here.

Re: Morning All
Thanks Mate,
I think I need to do some more investigating. I think oven number 1 looks amazing number 2 will look even better liking the bricks

Re: Morning All
Thats the way, do more researcher on this forum before you start your build. :)

Re: Morning All
BTW, We've heard before about the difficulty of sourcing fireclay in the UK. I know it's available, but not at every brickyard, like it is in the states. Ceramic suppliers may be able to get it for you, or point you in the right direction.

I try to pay as little attention to the saints and the angels as humanly possible :).
