What is Cob in Japanese?

By @filmoreha | 26 Mar 2013 | DIY Japanese

I'm looking into building an outdoor pizza oven for my next DIY project and ran into a building method using Cob, which is a material similar to Adobe.

Using Cob would be way cheaper and easier than building a masonry oven so I'm trying to figure out what the Japanese equivalent of Cob is and where I might be able to procure some?

Any ideas?


Not sure where to get it, but コブという泥できた自然素材 may work. I did some googling, and it mainly came up with volunteer workers or people building houses, but depending on the search, you may hit somewhere that knows what you're talking about.

Sorry I can't be of more help!


EDIT: only now did I realize this is one year old. Oops.
