Saggar fired vessel

Alternative firings can often be frustrating but sometimes they can give wonderful patterns and colours that you just could not achieve with glazing and conventional firings.

This little vessel came out of one of my recent saggar firings. It has some lovely deep blues and red colours and the pale markings are made by smoke 'shadows' from the straw that the pot was nestled in.
