Terra Sigillata

Terra Sigillata (or Terra Sig) literally means “Earth Seal”; is a slip containing very fine particles. It is created by a process of separation. Specially selected clays are grinded using a ball mill and water until the particles are extremely small. Deflocculant is added and the mixture is allowed to settle for up to 48 hours. The fluid left on top after settling is the terra sigillata.

Available in white and colored metallic finishes. Terra Sigillata can be applied onto unfired clay by spraying, brushing or dipping. After application simple polishing with your hands or a soft cloth will shine the surface to a high gloss. This smooth surface is ideal for decoration, especially with smoke firing and other primitive techniques. After firing you will have a smooth, weather resistant coating much like a glaze.

See product listings for recommended firing temperatures. Terra Sigilatta can be fired to any temp but lower temperatures will give a finer burnish/shine and will preserve the metallic colors
