Brick Oven Mosaics
Then there is the 'artistic' additions that match our personality, business image, or some trace medium that we want to splice onto our oven.
Occasionally, I've offered to create frescoes on the stucco of the ovens I build (I have a sculpture/painting background).
This oven, a dome which I built for a chef and caterer, has been enhanced and made personal by the pebble, sea glass, and mirror mosaic on the band of stucco over the dome. Mosaics have been used on some of the most splendid brick ovens all over Europe (and then in the US).
The arch and keystone details were my concept and were designed with the customer's input and approval.
