How to make this brick oven a better look? Answered

This brick oven is a temp one I made. Now I am thinking to make a permanent one. I just wonder how to give a better shape. Like this one, I always feel it is a tomb-like thing. GOD. See, I made sour dough and whole wheat Pita bread every day, yammy! I love to put vegeterian ham and pickled vegetable inside pita.

Why not push the whole tomb idea? Concrete it up to be a solid block, like a coffin. Mold a funereal pattern into the side and top when wet (Skull? Resting knight?), and build up a head-stone at the end you don't need to open. Then host a Hallowe'en bake-out.

Dear, I think I may do what you suggest when I sold the house. Otherwise, who dare to eat anything baked by the coffin? Who dare to sleep next wall to it?

I hope this is an outdoor oven. I don't think it is too safe to have something like this indoors without proper venting and consideration of the fuel being burned. You could add another masonary shell of tiles, stones, or decorative rocks. You would need to see if multiple heating and contracting fractures some kinds of rocks and not use them. Stucco or sculpt mortar/concrete to make it in the shape of a Sphinx, Dragon, Mayan temple, or anything you want. Have fun.

What's wrong with "the look?" Form follows function (sorry for the cliche, but it's valid.) A little masonry (or a welded angle-iron frame) and you're good...
