Sagger Firing, Ted Camp

Ted Camp  B-A
Thursdays 9:30 - 12:30

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 either wheel thrown or handbuilt and usually coated with a terra sigilatta slip that produces a shiny surface. Once bisqued, students will partially bury their pieces in wood shavings or sand while covering the exposed surfaces with a variety of colorants, steel wool, copper wire, and organic matter. The pieces will then be fired in either ceramic flower pots (sagger, and provided by the student) or within a wrapped shell of aluminum foil to produce a variety of colored affects. Includes 25 lbs of clay and firing.
