  2. Has anyone tried dried tomatoes as a way to add color to a saggar? I'm asking because I have several sheets of aluminum foil tomatoes have been grilled on, leaving the liquids dried with bits of seeds and such. Tomatoes are acidic, and I plan on trying a piece or two in my next firing, unless someone can tell me why I shouldn't. Opinions?
  3. Recent saggar firing with soluble salts. Fired in saggars in a raku kiln. Marcia
  4. 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
  5. Greetings, last year's workshop was so fun we decided to do it again. If you want to play at low temps and alternative firing techniques, we'd love for you to join us in Sioux Falls, SD!
  6. 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
  7. 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.
