Neriage is the act of mixing at least two colored clay bodies together, which will create swirling and spiraling patterns when thrown on the wheel. Nerikomi works are hand built and then carved or faceted into to create a variation of patterns on the clay surface accenting the mixed clay bodies. Explore these exciting new techniques, make your own colored clay, and discover glazing techniques to highlight the natural beauty of your finished pieces.

*Cost includes all supplies.
