Book "Saggar firing in an electric kiln"



In august 2019 I published the book 
"Saggar firing in een elektrische oven"
(Saggar firing in an electric kiln). The book is in Dutch. 

The review in an online magazine said:

"....The book is a detailed and very clear introduction to this technique for the novice saggar stoker. The book can also be a source of inspiration for those who have been familiar with these kinds of techniques for some time. Highly recommended." (Yna van der Meulen)

This is, in short, the content:

  • What is a saggar;
  • How to make a saggar;
  • A saggar in an electric kiln;
  • What clay to use for your work;
  • How to make and apply terra sigillata;
  • Which combustibles to use;
  • what colorants to use;
  • Technics to get good results;
  • Ideas to experiment.

English edition

The English version is going to be published by Schiffer Publishing in Pennsylvania in the USA. The English version will contain even more photo's of finished work. You'll have to be patient though, because it will be released in the Autumn of 2021. 
They are working hard and somewhere in the next few months the marketing materials will ready. Hopefully it will be added to their spring catalog.

Ceramics magazines

For the promotion of my book I'm looking for ceramic magazines worldwide. I've the one published in the UK and France and one in Spain and Brasil. 

If there are any magazines on ceramics in your country, or you know about magazines in other countries, please let me know by email. Thank you very much!


If you want to be kept up-to-date, sent me an email (info(at) with: "Keep me informed about the English version of your book about saggar firing."
