Not just earth

When the earth meets fire and can contain it, ovens can be born and these would have been the first ovens in history. Brilliantly simple and functional, clay has excellent thermal heat properties: and can retain heat for long periods . . . The ovens are constructed entirely with 100% natural materials thus their environmental impact is virtually zero. They are also financially viable when they are self built.
