The Arch

I am trying to relate my current ceramic work to the body and scale. I hope to balance eroded bricks in the shape of an arch that would be large enough for the viewer to step under, if they dared. I need to figure out how to balance the arch post firing. All I know about arches is that the keystone is essentially, beyond that I may have to enlist my engineering buddies to help me with this ambitious endeavor. I am looking at all different methods of building, my only criteria is that I don't use mortar or adhesive of any kind.
