The Art of Saggar Firing

Feb 25th - Feb 26th, 2012

Carla's Clay
Sarasota, FL  

Saggar Firing is an alluring process where vessels are fumed in organic materials and minerals to create dynamic and mystical blushes on the vessel surface without the use of glazes. McMahon has been using this firing method for 17 years and her work has a unique saggar signature like no other. Participants will bring 2 to 6 small vessels or sculptures for the firing, as well as clay saggars to house those pieces. McMahon will cover form, surface, burnishing, terra siggalatta and saggar firing in this chock full weekend.
