  1. 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.
  2. My 6 week online course on Alternative firing techniques begins on Nov. 2-Dec 11 https://www.teachinart.com/alternative-firing.html. see more courses available online at https://www.teachinart.com. Marcia
  3. 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?
  4. Recent saggar firing with soluble salts. Fired in saggars in a raku kiln. 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

  7. From the album: Dirty Scot Pottery, 2013

    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.
