"There are so many different naked raku techniques I am eager to experiment with - For now, it’s the saggar process which involves a surface treatment of the bisqued pot using numerous materials and a range of chemicals such as Ferric Chloride to banana skins, seaweed, and sawdust to name just a few.

These materials are placed on the pot, which is then wrapped in aluminum foil and fired in my raku kiln. The wrapping creates a reduced atmosphere against the pot as the temperatures rise, creating various chemical reactions from the materials which will leave behind permanent marks; once it has cooled and been cleaned, the pot is then treated with beeswax to enhance the saggar effect." - Anne Jillett
