Sagger Firing, Ted Camp

Ted Camp   I-A
Thursdays 9:30 - 12:30

Sagger firing is a specialized way of low-firing (1600 degrees) ceramic pieces which fume inside (usually) ceramic containers leaving a serendipitous surface pattern. This process will not involve glazing. Pieces may either be wheel thrown or hand built and coated with a terra sigilatta slip. When bisqued, students will partially bury their pieces in containers in sawdust and/or sand while covering their pieces in a variety of colorants, steel wool, copper wire, and organic matter. Pieces will either be fired in commercial clay flower pots (student provided) or within a wrapped shell of aluminum foil. The material provided in the covering will produce a variety of colored patterns, after which the surfaces may be waxed. Includes 25 lbs. of clay.
