Yes, but why?

Although, a few of us at work have been talking about building an oil
insulated TC.. primary and secondary all immersed in oil.  Possibly using
those tapewound inductors for a secondary..  The vertical column isn't then
a big solenoid, but is just an oil insulated wire to the topload. You'd have
(potentially) very high coupling between primary and secondary, but rely on
the insulation to hold off racing sparks, etc.

Of course, it's getting towards a pulse transformer, then....
