Hey Frances

Truly a labor of LOVE. Did you keep track of how many hours of love it took to create this beauty?

Send that girl some Italian Flour! You win the prize for the month......is there a prize? Anyway, promise me you will notify your newspaper or local television to come see your work. You need to charge admission. Very very very nice work Frances.

How cool is that. Frances, she (your oven is a she, right?) just keeps getting better and better.

Are you actually done? Could that be possible?

James

It's fabulous! Congradulations. The ultimate in funcional-art.

Complete with the cool twirly-bit on top.

If there was a WFO "hall of fame", you would be in it.

Thumbs up Re: Pompeii Oven in Switzerland: the Saga Continues...

Congratulations Frances - it is absolutely amazingly, stunningly, beautiful!!
I think you need an official christening party to name her - how about The SwisSwirl?
Is there a good name in Swiss German?
Name or no name, you need a party to show her off!

Thank you all very very much! Building this oven wouldn't have been the same without you lot!

This is such a great forum... I enjoyed building the oven a lot, but I also really enjoy being part of this comunity. So thank you James and everybody else, for making this the wonderful place it is. And thank you for all the encouraging comments along the way, I value every one of them!

I have no idea how long its taken me to get this far. I started 16 months ago... so lets see... do all the shopping trips for bricks and etc count, too? At a wild guess I worked maybe 10 hours a week more or less, on average... so that'd be about 640 hours of work. Does that sound right?

The party's a good idea, but I'll definately wait until the chimney's finished (HaHAA - not finished yet after all!!), maybe even for warmer weather in Spring. That'll give me a bit of time to think up a good name, too.

And here specially for PizzaPolice, is one last picture - nearly black and white, too, as dogs are colour blind...

I think your oven looks like an Arabella, but that's just my humble opinion... I still don't know what mine looks like. I can't even decide if it's a girl or a guy... all I know is: it isn't a Woody.

I think we need a poll on this critical issue.
