These are a slightly more heavy duty than the chicken wire type lathe, but a bit more difficult to form as they are somewhat firmer. Since each sheet is firm it will self form itself nicely, hopefully, around the vertical walls of my oven.
I'll find a way to attach them once I get to that point. I've never used them before but I've seen them at Home Depot next to the standard stucco lathes.
In your case, it might be a lot easier to work with chicken wire over the sphere.

In between chicken wire, and expanded metal lath (lathe is a machine that cuts cylindrical objects) there is hardware cloth, which may be easier to work with than the metal lath.

quick question...should the vent arch/chimney area be wrapped with the insulation blanket just like the dome, or is it unnecesary. I wanted to have the entire oven (everything!!!) wrapped with the blanket? my dad seems to think that it is impossible to stucco the dome because the blanket that i wrapped over the vent arch is "in the way". he wants to cut everything off except the insulation that is around the dome. can anyone confirm whether this is right or wrong?

If you keep the vent area insulated, it will draw smoke up into the flue more effectively (hot smoke goes up, cold smoke goes out the door into your face). Lots of us have insulated our vents. Check out the (numerous) photos of my build for an indication of how I did it.
