This seems to me to be a difficult and expensive way to build a heat 
exchanger. Stainless steel would be much easier to work with, less 
bulky, and probably more efficient. It can easily withstand the flue 
temperatures since it is actively cooled on one side. Studio Potter 
published an excellent design Volume 7 number 2 by Buddy Francis.
