Default Very cool Modena installation

Check this Modena installation out. Excellent tile work. The restaurant is Spasso in Minneapolis.

Sweet!
I know from experience what went into that oven. They spent a tidy sum on labor charges.
Beautiful work.

Guess If I stick with the igloo look on the next one I have something to shoot for. I was pretty proud of my mosaic work until I saw this oven.

...Yeah, and then someone says something nice about your oven, and all you can say is: "Well you should see the ones on the forum!"

We know a rich guy, who owns a gazillion dollar sailboat, which he used to sail the Mediterranean a few summers ago. The first thing he said when he got back was that the other boards in the harbors were bigger, and he was ordering a bigger boat. A sad, but true, story.

I think oven envy is much more benign. :-)

I think this is primarily because members realize that this hobby/obssesion is developing at a rate unheard of a decade ago. I know it has been said a million times before but it is all down to James, whose primary business is to sell ovens, who has created a forum that, I believe, will become the definitive source of information for self-build. I am certain a lot of other oven owners would love to incorporate some of the developements if they had to do it again.

My own oven has been built in the manner and with materials that has been used since time immemorial. As meyvelitepe, our other Turkish member, said "built by seniors" The mortar of my dome came in a flour bag from the mountains and I have salt under my firebrick hearth. He is building a Pompeii and believes that is the way forward in Anatolia. Progress!

Am I happy with it..............of course. It performs superbly. Would I change anything.........undoubtedly. I have yet to explore the reaches of 'plasma fire' and baking is a mystery that I have yet to embrace. We built before finding Forno Bravo and see everything in a different light now. The last 2000 years of WFO for me has been compressed into 6 months and I know the next one will be better.

And RTf..............without wishing to sound patronising.............the mosaic on your oven is superb...........truly
