Saggar is the name given to a firing  process that is derived from ancient China. The Chinese used saggars, which is a ceramic container,  to protect pieces from flame impingement, falling ash, or other debris that occurs in fuel burning kilns. The saggar glaze is produced by using iron on a bisque piece and then adding feathers, horse hair, copper wire, salt, and any other materials that I can find. The pot is then fired inside a saggar at 1800 for several hours.  The end result is  a beautiful and unique design on each and every piece.

Since each piece is made by hand, some variance in color, shade, intensity, shape, and size will occur.
