The followings are some examples of what you will be making in a  workshop inspired by Japanese ceramic.

You will learn different decoration techniques on tiles to then apply on your ceramic pieces. But the tiles themselves will be beautifully glazed too.

You will learn different slip applications such as pour-patterning and slip-inlay with different slip colours on your pieces. Slip can create beautiful effects in combinations with right glazes.

Kurinuki is a traditional Japanese technique. It is basically a carving technique to create an object that celebrates the irregularity, uniqueness and expressiveness.

Kurinuki technique is open to any wild creativity!

This charming cup is one of the few kurinuki cups made by one of my clay learners.
