About the Demonstration

Colored porcelain is so much fun to work with! Using the ancient art of Nerikomi, Susan will transform a single blend of colored porcelain into stripe, check, jelly roll and herringbone patterns, and then demonstrate how she uses those patterns to create her functional ceramic work. Collectors will appreciate the unique approach she takes to incorporating the beauty of nature in her work, as well as the meticulous attention to detail that each of her unique designs demands. Makers will gain valuable insights into this complex process as Susan breaks it all down, answers questions and provides insight into how other ceramic artists might use Nerikomi techniques in their own creative work. Let’s explore the endless possibilities of colored porcelain together!
