Nerikomi is the Japanese word for a pottery making technique that involves arranging coloured clay in a mosaic-like fashion.

In my iteration of nerikomi I layer coloured clay, compressing the layers into fine lines though various methods involving lifting, slamming and slapping a layered clay loaf. Slices of the loaf are then taken , with lines permeating across them. These slabs are then pressed into tableware such as bowls, cups and plates. The surface is then honed and often burnished too. After slow drying over 2 weeks, the pots are fired, and clear glazed on the interior, maturing at a high temperature of 1260°C.
