The saggar house at Maddock’s pot bank, Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent.
The workers in the picture are in the process of placing wares into saggars in preparation for firing.
Young members of the team put the ring of clay around the rim of the saggars. This ring of clay provided a seal went the flat lid was put on the saggar.
