Saggar

Recommended Posts

jrgpots    231

I found this on ebay.  It is a 23-24" saggar with lid for $25.00.  Is it worth it?  Where else can one get saggars?  I have some refractory clay. Would it be better to throw a saggar with the refractory clay?

Who knows how many firings that saggar has been through and how many more it will last. Could crack in your first firing. Better to make your own.

I make my own with raku clay

 

I will throw and slab build a few saggars with the raku clay and save the refractory for other uses.

 

Neil, you have a great point about not knowing the firing history of the saggar in the pic.

 

 

Thanks.

In addition to longevity, there's no way of knowing what it might be contaminated with. They may have been putting all sorts of nasty stuff in it that's going to fume out into your pots.

Any chance any one have a saggar clay body recipe. Using saggar xx as ingredient?

 

I think sagger xx is just a ball clay, don't think it's used specifically for saggars.

I got marks repair from the ceramic store in Philadelphia. Raku paper will do as well.
