making a clay oven

crystal

Does anybody have any experience of making an oven out of potter's clay? I have a bag of it and want to try making one (a small dome with a loaf-sized opening? - a bit like a bird's nesting box? Your guess is as good as mine! I want to try cooking my sourdough loaf by woodfiring for maximum flavour! Many thanks, Crystal
