Brick Oven Stone Face

Finishing the presentational face of a brick oven presents many aesthetic choices.  The most recent oven, in the dining facility of Brewster Academy in New Hampshire, was designed to echo the design of the fireplace in the same building. 

However, as an oven with an arched mouth and face, the use of the granite shifted from a simple rectangular framing to the segmented classical arch.   The base and shelf stone slabs were built with a corbel for decorative and structural purposes.

The makeup air vents and the sides and the ten inch flue worked perfectly.
