Thanks for thorough reply.

As you indicated : However you can speed it up. But first make sure clay is totally dry before applying assisting drying fires. When clay is wet it's dark in color, drying makes it lot lightish.

Is the clay color sufficient to indicate that the clay has dried fully inside and outside the oven? Can the color be superficial and not be a good indicator that the clay has not fully dried inside the clay dome?

I have seen clay oven web sites, such as this: drying fires, where the oven was fired shortly after construction.
