I remember you mentioned it - and I certainly pricked my ears up on that one. You can bet I'll be watching your build with great interest.

Short break in the rain yesterday, so out I went... once the upper dome and chimney was finished I was thinking "hey, nearly done now".

... but NOO, the base must have about the same surface area as the dome. And more rain today, with nothing for me to do apart from posting the pics of my minimal progress. Never mind I'll get there one of these days!

Oh, I love the last picture. Did you sprout wings to get that one?

It looks lovely and I can relate on the rain. But the major problem finishing here is I ran out of vermiculite... but I have found 3 more bags and should be on my way again as soon as hurricane season lets us breathe again.

Thank you all very much for your kind comments!

I've been really busy on the oven recently, but a bit fed up because there seemed to be diddley squat to show for it...

But today I discovered that if I climb onto the oven and over the fence into our neighbour's garden I can actually see the oven from BEHIND!!

Of course my first thought was to share the view with you lot. The second pic is a beauty shot from the side, not because there's any progress, but just because I felt like it.

Btw, if any of you think crawling into your oven to clean the inside of the dome is uncomfortable, try doing a couple of hours of mosaics half way up an oven with your head down between the base and the fence, your hair tangled in the fence wire and your nose about three inches from the little fiddley tiles... I'm surprised its turned out as well as it has, I couldn't see what I was doing half the time. The other half I was clutching my head going, gosh I feel so dizzy.

There's simply no end to the fun you can have with an oven, is there?

So you're having fun - believe me, your results make it more than worthwhile!

Hope you're not ever planning to move - how could you ever leave that oven??!!

Absolutely stunning work! Say, is that a base for a BBQ I see on the grassy area?
