Forgot to say: If there are a lot of really small pots, 4-5" or
so, they can be combined in a large bag.

The main reason for going to the trouble to create a saggar (of
any material) is to keep the combustibles in close proximity to
the pots to be fired.

My experience of the paper saggars is that they produce very
colorful pots, reliably, consistently.

Saggar is a wonderful word. It is a shortened form of the English
"safe guard".
