Saggar

Recommended Posts

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?

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.
