Earth Oven

Marco school earth oven
Our earth oven was made on a very rainy morning with Makahu and Huiakama Schools. We also had the help of Captain Enviro and his girlfriend (we think).

All the kids helped make it.  Mrs Spencer our art teacher, who comes up every 6 months, suggested making it as part of an art project.

Its made out of clay on the top, with glass bottles under the broken concrete to keep all the heat in. On top of the concrete are bricks, then clay bricks (which we made).  Rick (our handy man) made us the small wooden door from ply wood.

We've used it about 10 times - we made delicious pizzas and one time we cooked our pies in it because our power went out! It worked!


  1. Thanks so much to the lovely lads who showed me around Marco School today. I can't wait to see your other posts! Well done.

  2. Wow Marco School - your earth oven looks great - even after all this time. You obviously look after it really well. Have you made a sculpture on the outside? (it's a bit hard to see in the photo - maybe a lizard?)
    Captain Enviro's girlfriend?! Haha
    PS Shall we celebrate after our silver reflection with Marco pizzas?


Thanks for leaving a comment!
