What Dragon is describing is closer to the Athenian cloche ovens than the 
Egyptian bread molds.

The Athenian oven is a terracotta dome on a flat terracotta base.  The 
Egyptian bread molds were made of two terracotta cones (probably joined and 
sealed at the base by a little mud) about 30 inches overall length and 18 
inches in diameter.  These were seated in a group of indentations and a 
charcoal fire built around them.
