Superior Clay has developed components and a set of plans and instructions for the construction of traditional masonry ovens. Superior Clay wood fire ovens can be built along side a Rumford Fireplace or as a standalone unit in your kitchen or in your backyard. The exterior of the oven can be finished with a variety of masonry materials including brick, stone, stucco or tile.

A Special Note About Wood Fired Ovens: Terra Cotta components are subject to thermal shock and cracking.
