Nerikomi pottery is made by slicing and stacking clay. It is a fascinating method and it’s strangely satisfying to watch it be made.

Slabs of different clays or clays colored with stains or oxides, are stacked, folded, pressed into logs, sliced, and arranged to form a vessel. In this way, the numerous stacked layers appear as fine undulating lines embedded in a surrounding color in the finished vessel. (Wikipedia)

Watch this short film and you’ll love how the artists use wire to cut through the clay to reveal a great surprise underneath.
