My Red Vase, March 2007
- Wheel thrown
- Laguna B-Mix 10
- Burnished while leather hard
- Polished with Terra Sigilata while bone dry
- Bisque fired to Cone 08
- Fired in a foil saggar [link]
with ferric chloride, horse hair, wood shavings, and sugar (we call these baked potato pots because they look like baked potatoes wrapped in foil in the kiln)
- No glaze
This is one of the two pots that I have decided to keep for myself from the Linda and Charlie Riggs workshop. The 1 horsehair that I put inside the saggar left such an amazing impact on the overall look of the pot. I put a lot of wood shavings inside the pot to turn it black. I think some of the smoke is what turned the top and shoulders somewhat black too.
