By Thomas Hoadley

A fully illustrated examination of the use of color in clay, outlining its history and exploring the styles and techniques of the leading modern makers. Mix two or more colors of clay as part of a piece's design, and you are creating nerikomi. There are many techniques – stacking, stretching, slicing – but with nerikomi, the decoration is built and fired into the work's very fabric, rather than glazing it later.

This beautifully illustrated introduction by accomplished nerikomi specialist Thomas Hoadley includes a brief history of the origins and international styles of colored clay; a section dedicated to the most honored Japanese Masters of nerikomi; stunning examples of work from the world's leading experts; and step-by-step examples of many of the techniques employed. Whether you simply enjoy the beauty of multicolored clay, or are seeking inspiration for your own work, this essential volume will guide you as you embark on your own nerikomi projects.
