Thanks for sharing this, Ryan! It's wonderful that you've taught people the beauty of pottery. The feeling of clay is something for the soul. This is elegant. Food tastes better when eaten from a bowl created by one's own hand. Please do share more. I've never been a good or dedicated functional potter but I love it when someone IS! It takes special care and skill to do this.


Love its swirls and your handmade bowl. Marina.


Wow! This looks almost good enough to eat! I love the swirls.

I admire all types of art and artists. I love anything tactile and useful. Pottery is both. Look forward to seeing more. Cheers Yolanda


Gosh I wish we lived closer. I would love to learn how to throw something...….I believe you would be a wonderful teacher.


I could teach you. I've had 3 students before when I was the artist in residence at a publicly funded studio. The kid made a hand-thrown bowl with inlaid patterns on his first try. The two adults were so busy taking selfies that their "mugs" looked like flowerpots. *shrugs*



Oh so you have a kick wheel. A friend of mine has one and a couple of years ago was going to teach me how to do use it, but something came up and I never got the opportunity to learn.

Christy's website is:


Nerikomi is a set of techniques for decorating pottery. It is used around the world and goes by many different names. In it, you combine different colors of clay to decorate the piece. You can make specific patterns, pictures, or make it marbled like this. The spiral of it comes from the spinning of my kick-wheel. After it dries, you have to scrape or sand the surface to clean up the pattern and make it visible.


I don't know if Malick likes pottery or not, but I do! Please tell me what a Nerikomi bowl is and when and how it is used.

I don't know if your grandma told you or not but Christy has made some beautiful pieces of pottery.



Thanks again! Do you like pottery? I can post more tomorrow.

Beautiful piece. Well done! Cheers Yolanda
