This is the cob pizza oven built last weekend by Tom, Gred, and company. Cob, as you may know, has nothing to do with corn cobs; it's a mixture of clay, sand, straw, dirt and water. I can't wait to help fire it up and make some pies. Oddly, the clay class at Penland built a little oven the same day this was built.
Tammy found this really nice time-lapse video of a nice cob oven going up in Costa Rica. It shows the process quite well.
