pottery is 'baked' with an open fire, pots are preheated next to fire, if they are warm, fire is almost put out by covering it with fresh leaves, pots are put on top of leaves with new firewood, and an oven is built around it with grass, causes a lot of smoke. As the oven is completed extra air is added to ignite the new (just added) firewood and the fire is left to burn itself out, the resulting pottery has large black spots which you also see in prehistoric pottery in museums. The reenactor on the phot is just finishing the grass oven in front of her.
