Feather Medicine Box

Sagger is an alternative firing method using a confined atmosphere during the firing process. Coated with solutions, draped with horse hair, sisal or other materials, pieces are then wrapped and sealed for firing in the sagger. There is great variety in the finishes, some earthy and smoked, some colorful. This piece, inspired by a Native American rawhide and deerskin medicine bag has been blackened by smoke that enhanced the red clay and brought out some grays. The interior is blackened with some red clay and grey smoke near the top.
