Wild Rose Oven

The Wild Rose Oven was built in the Chilcotin region of British Columbia (Sept 2009). The design was inspired from old Russian fairy tales which gave me the idea for the ogive style arch. All materials where salvaged locally except for the fire brick for the hearth. The door was made by a local blacksmith named Darren from Mountain Shadow Metals ( I gave him some dimensions and discussed some artistic ideas for the door. A week later he hammered together this arched door with a beautiful rose on the front...the man has serious skills.
The oven was finished with Keanu's (two years of age) hand print on the right hand side of the oven. With an abundant supply of pine wood in the Chilcotin, wood fire cookery will be happening in this gorgeous part of British Columbia.
