Nerikomi

Nerikomi, or layering, is a technique that involves adding coloured stains to clay, then forming designs using several or multiple colours. Each piece is initially flat, then is shaped using a mold. Finally a foot is attached using a pottery wheel. Most of my pieces are made using porcelain clay.

Each piece takes many hours to create and there are many opportunities for things to go wrong! However, it provides an opportunity to create beautiful and unique pieces.
