Saggar and Horsehair

Aluminum foil is wrapped around the pot to contain fumes so that the pot picks up color from the fumes. Horse hair is applied by heating up the already fired piece to 1500 degrees, taking it out of the kiln and applying the horse hair to the pot, which leaves a black carbon foot print.
