Class Description

Here's your chance to get a taste of an alternate form of firing. Saggars are refractory containers; fine Chinese porcelain work was fired inside saggars to keep fly ash and other impurities off during firing. Today the same method is used to contain combustibles and organic materials to encourage interesting surfaces on the work inside. We'll talk about the best forms for this kind of low temperature firing and explore surface preparation as well as do in class loading and firing. Work is non-functional, and there may be some outside class time required.

No Class Available.
