Creating Nerikomi Plates with Saori Matsushita, April 29th, 12pm-3pm.
Nerikomi is one of the hand-building techniques of ceramics. Although it is a modern Japanese ceramic technique, it has a long history, originating more than 1300 years ago in China. In the US, it is also called Marbling or Agateware.
It is a method of creating patterns by kneading or layering different colors of clays, and a wide variety of expressions are possible depending on the combination and balance of colors. The patterns can be constructed like Italian millefiori glass or made intuitively or impulsively.
Join your instructor Saori Matsushita to learn the process where you can make your own small platter or plate.
