Yes, I did use an I.T.
for the fire brick

The brick on the exterior of the dome that you see are actually brick floor splits which were later grouted. They are adhered to a stucco layer with thinset.
The stucco layer is separated from the fire brick by about 8" of insulation (4" ceramic fiber blanket and about 4" of vermicrete). I used a swinging plywood form to true up the vermicrete layer to make the exterior a perfect sphere.

My oven is a little on the extreme side. There are plenty of great looking
working wood fired pizza/bread ovens that have been built by folks without any prior experience.
My sincere apologies to jsperk
for the hijack. I started researching wood fired ovens after Hurricane Katrina. We spent about 2 and a half weeks eating 3 meals a day cooked by charcoal. I was looking for any alternative to charcoal that did not require, electricity or gas. Between FornoBravo
and The BBQ Brethren
, the next one should be a lot more palatable
