Too little sand = cracking

Lesson learnt - I made a rim for the base of the clay oven yesterday. It was mostly clay with just a little sand. Cracked severely as it dried. Check the picture.

The point here is that the clay is supposed to act as a binder for the sand. There should be a lot of sand in the adobe mix from which the oven is constructed.
