Slab Building Plates with texture patterns

Some of my slab building works with texturing pattern. You can use any materials have unique pattern.
I use black slip on the white cray or you can do this without slip.

Anyone can make fine artistic works even if a person does not have a paint skill with under glaze paints.

“Oribe ware ” like  plates

Oribe Furuta is founder of the Oribe-yaki.

He believed to have hired a large number of craftsmen and pottery workers to have them create works of art, having been the founder of the Oribe-style earthenware and the Oribe school

Oribe ware is pottery made mainly in Mino Province from the Tensho era (1573-1592) of the Momoyama period.

There are several kinds of Oribe ware according to glaze color and so on, including ao-oribe (partially covered with green glaze), aka-oribe (combination of red and white clay), kuro-oribe (a type of oribe ware with black glaze) and shino-oribe (a type of oribe ware utilizing techniques of e-shino).

Dye Forming Plates

Some small plates are formed with dyes. You may find some nice house ware and use them for forming the slab.
It is recommended that the thickness of the slab is 5 to 7mm.


Slipware is the primary decorating process where slip is placed onto the leather-hard clay body surface before firing by dipping, painting or splashing.

The slip placed onto a wet or leather-hard clay body surface by a variety of techniques including dipping, painting, piping or splashing.

Principal techniques include slip-painting, where the slip is treated like paint and used to create a design with brushes or other implements.

Often only pottery where the slip creates patterns or images will be described as slipware, as opposed to the many types where a plain slip is applied to the whole body.
