Sagger firing is a special way of low-firing (1300- 1600 degrees) unglazed clay pieces which are fumed inside special containers leaving serendipitous colored surface patterns. This process will not involve glazing. Pieces may be wheel thrown or handbuilt and usually coated with a terra sigilatta slip that produces a shiny surface. When bisqued, students will partially bury their pieces in sawdust or sand while covering their pieces with a variety of colorants, steel wool, copper wire and organic matter. Pieces will be fired either in clay flower pots (student provided)
or within a wrapped shell of aluminum foil to produce a variety of colored affects. Class fee included 25 lbs of clay and all necessary firing.
