Saggar

Here is my new saggar on instagram

This is a saggar. I can fire pots sealed within the saggar together with combustible material like sawdust, thus achieving smoke-fired or reduction effects within an electric kiln, at least that’s what I hope. The saggar clay body itself is an ‘open’ body and consists of terracotta, sand and quite a bit of sawdust, which burnt out during the firing. 24 hours later the house still smells like a bonfire. (So we won’t be doing that again, at least not in this house!)
