Meet the Brick Oven Mason

There are number of ways you can know the mason who can build a brick oven.
#1 You can be that mason.
#2 You can invite the mason to your place.
#3 You can meet him or her at a showcase event such as a 'home and garden show'

If you live within driving range of Durham, New Hampshire you can meet me next weekend, March 24 and 25 at the Whitemore Center of UNH for the Seacoast Home and Garden Show

This is where I set up a booth and field questions from interested attendees.  Although a number of brick oven projects have resulted from people meeting me and talking about their dream of a brick oven, I especially enjoy meeting other brick oven owners and bakers, curious newcomers to the world of brick ovens and people who have experienced first-hand the cultures that have brick ovens at the center of their culinary life.

As a collector/archivist of historical brick oven information, these events have often led to a window into the deep impression that brick ovens have made on older immigrants.
