The Japanese word ‘Kurinuki’ means to hollow.  A traditional hand building technique in Japan, Kurinuki involves carving from a single block of clay to create a vessel such as an indoor planter.

This method is intended to be spontaneous and unrefined, forming ornamental surface decoration by carving fluid shapes and designs into the clay.  The resulting textured surfaces offer interesting glazing options.  It is suitable for beginners and those with experience. 

Shelley Bock

Shelley Bock is a fine artist specialising in ceramics and printmaking. Her work explores themes of fragility and transience in the natural world with intent to capture a lightness of touch reflecting this vulnerability. Each handmade piece is inspired by nature and sensitively created often with the use of delicate, white porcelain. Shelley enjoys the unpredictability of working with clay and printmaking and the element of risk.
