    Thanks everyone! We are really amazed with the wood oven. After cooking bread and pizza in it yesterday, we closed it up over night. It was still 230 degrees this morning! Around lunch time, we put in a silverside roast covered in tomato passata and stacks of herbs and veggies. It slow-cooked all day without needing any wood at all. Then I put in a bread & butter pudding for dessert. Yum! All from 1 firing yesterday. This is a very economical way to cook. We can get about 3 days of cooking from 1 firing – the insulation is key. We’re hoping to invite others from around the neighbourhood to use the oven when it’s on the go to make the most of it cos it’s pretty big.

    fruit_loopz – my sister’s turtles vary in size – from about 12-15 cm across the shell (give or take). Let me know if you’re interested. πŸ™‚

    Bel, you are an inspiration! What a talented hubby you have too. The oven looks awesome, I can almost smell that pizza just looking at it. The mosaic is amazing too. I hope you’ll post a pic of it in situ behind the fairy garden when it’s up.

    Did you get the insulation blanket stuff from the Kent Town place? What’s it called?

    Here’s a couple of photos of the fairy mosaic in situ:

    BV – we did get the insulation from the place in Kent Town – called Traditional Brick Ovens. It’s made of spun ceramic, or so I’m told by DH – I’m not sure the name of the product though. Here’s a link to their website. The couple that own the shop are very friendly and helpful. The hubby builds brick ovens for people as well, and they have mobile brick ovens for catering etc. A really good shop (they also have some lovely metal wall murals, fire pits, bread baskets etc etc). Here they are: Traditional Brick Ovens
