If you're short of blue glass Frances, it's only ~25Eur per case, and it's great for getting stains out of the carpet too!

Frances, your swirls are absolutely amazing. Even my husband was impressed.

If a tile/shard/piece isn't frostproof, what happens? Does it flake off?

Frances,

The mosaic design is amazing. That is going to be really eye-catching! Can't wait to see more.

Wow, Francis! First time I've seen your oven, and it really is in a league of it's own. Very cool idea, using mosaic to decorate your oven.

Not mine though - I'm just copying RT's idea I was still a bit undecided about this whole project until I saw the pic of his oven...

Thank you for your comments everyone! Its nice to know my progress is being followed, wonderful motivation!

Elizabeth, non frost proof tiles can absorb water in the layer under the glaze and when that water freezes and expands in winter the colour does indeed flake off - as I learnt the hard way...

So here's todays efforts.... Its like one of those "spot the 10 differences between the pictures" things

Here you go, Ebay:

500°C Thermometer Steinbackofen Holzbackofen Ofen Grill bei eBay.de: Zubehör (endet 17.05.08 19:55:41 MESZ)

Its not particularly exact or fast, but it does the job.

Danke, Mit freundlichem grussen!

I'm sure I'll find the need for a high tech temperature monitoring solution at some stage, but I fancied building a probe thermometer into the oven door in the mean time.

a la



Ebay UK obviously doesn't search other european Ebays how rubbish is that!

How long was Picasso's blue phase again? Mine lasted all weekend...

Filling in some of the gaps, working from the top down - mainly because I want to finish everything that needs me standing on the oven before putting any mosaic on the flat areas... which means I should really get going on the chimney. Only I'm not sure whats going to happen there yet....

I have to tell you that I really have no idea what this will look like when its finished.
