  1. Recent saggar firing with soluble salts. Fired in saggars in a raku kiln. Marcia
  2. From the album: saggar, horse hair, feathers, foil saggars, Obvara

    these were developed from an idea of using small tiles in a sagger with a pot. The byproduct was intriguing and this is the result for more finished pieces.
  3. I have been busy with firing pieces for several exhibitions since the weather broke. The obvara was pretty successful. I have been experimenting in the saggars using tiles as baffles to help hold combustibles in place. I am including two pieces of framed baffles because I find them so intriguing. the pots range from 8-12" in ht. I am using terra sig on the sagger pieces as well as on the smooth areas of the obvara pieces. I use ball clay TS so that it absorbs the obvara and the fuming in the saggars. I just added the poster for the Invitational show. Marcia

  5. I'm in a bit of a quandary regarding saggar firing. I'd really love to try it, but here's the thing. From what I've read on internet saggar can't be used on functional ware. I've thrown a tall lidded pot and a bud vase/oil holder and I think they both would look really great with the effects of saggar. My question is - having been thrown in stoneware, bisqued to 960 deg C, how would glazing on the inside be affected by saggar firing. I know if I leave unglazed the pot can be used to store spaghetti etc ie. non porous items but the oil pot would not be food safe. If I glaze with earthenware glaze and fire to about 1100 (electric kiln) what's the possibility of the saggar affecting the inside? (my idea is to glaze and saggar fire at the same time) Or should I glaze fire with stoneware glaze to 1200 first? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

  10. Hi, do any of you know if you can refire saggar? My kiln shut down twice during the fire and the second time it did not reach 800 deg C so the colours did not form, and I was wondering if I refire again with the same oxides whether they would take. Thanks in advance. Have a good weekend. Andrea
  11. Do any of you do this? I am interested in what I could use for the Saggar itself. I might be interested in using it for a reduction atmosphere or testing salt , ash or Saggar firings itself in my tiny electric kiln. I suspect it might be very hard on the elements all the same. What I would really like it for , is to protect my kiln if I am trying something a little risky. So what kind of containment could I use? And how would I set up? Any details are helpful!Thanks Jolie
  12. Here's my question: Is it possible or recommended to aluminum wrap saggar fire in an electric kiln ware that has been partially glaze fired to cone 5 or 6? Will the vitrified clay accept the carbon from the smoke? My goal is to have the inside of my ware glazed but have exterior raw and charred looking. Any other suggestions are extremely welcome. Thank you!

    Glaze fired vase. First experiment combining glaze and saggar firing. Fired first with a commercial glaze on the inside of the vase. Fired in an aluminum foil saggar a second time with ferric chloride, epson salt, horse hair, miracle grow, cobalt carbonate and copper carbonate. Successful test, sold within minutes of being finished.
