Saggar Fire Vessels

The illusive nature of saggar fire vessels is both alluring and addictive. Despite the artists effort, no two burnished vessels are alike.

These unglazed pots are wrapped carefully with organic materials, ropes, wire and minerals and then packed in a chamber within the gas kiln. During the firing, the organic materials burn away, and the flame marks, vapor flashes and mineral fumes create a beautiful array of smokey soft colors that are both delicate and dynamic.
