Pit Fired Saggar Work

While not functional ware, these saggar pieces bring such joy and beauty to the home. Similar to raku pieces, Saggar work should not be used with food and will not hold water, due to the porosity of the clay. These decorative pieces are left unglazed and placed into a pit firing with combustable materials. These materials, as they burn, are what create the soft coloring and mesmerizing patterning on the surface of the work.
