JAPANESE KURINUKI WORKSHOP
Kurinuki is a Japanese form of hand building. It involves using a block of clay and carving the exterior and the interior. It is a more sculptural and instinctual way of working with clay. Rather than symmetry and precision, tipical of the pottery on wheel, the focus is to evolve impulsively the form , that it is revealed during the making process itself. Since it’s simply a method of building, you can experiment with shaping and texturing options like cutting, paddling, tearing, squeezing, stretching, and carving, in order to reflect your own aesthetic.
Duration is 2 days.
1.Day - 2 hours
2. Day - 2 hours
Part 1: a two hour workshop and we will be focusing on making a bowl in the first hour of the class and a cup in the second hour.
Part 2: (after 3 weeks): We will glaze the creations: we use underglazes and /or pensil glazes.
We will notify you by email when the pieces are ready to be collected. Feel free to bring your own drinks and relax. This is a fun workshop for people at all levels of clay hand building.
