One of the first letters, I kept when I just joined clayart, In the
last millennium, was Ivor lewis's about saggar firing. I read it again
and again every day.
I read more and more. When the time arrive to test, I made a vase, I
added to the claybody brass chips from our local metal factory.
I built a saggar A big one, out of rough raku claybody.
The moment has arrived to put my ware into the saggar.
The saggar was big, but the ware was bigger.
Phil Davenport's can looks to like an easy solution.
Thank you !
