Clay Oven

Yorkton WDM - Clay Oven - man mixing clay and staw with bare feet standing in front of almost complete oven The Yorkton WDM clay oven was built in 1975 on the farm of William K. Elaschuk with the assistance of Bob Pearce and Mike Nabozniak (all members of the Yorkton Threshermen’s Club). It was built on a platform with wheels; this allowed it to be moved but eventually was stationed permanently under cover at Grandma’s Oven in the outdoor compound of the Yorkton WDM. The walls are made from clay with flax straw mixed in.
