Shigenobu Mori

I’m making my works by using a technique called Nerikomi and Wariire for 16 years. Nerikomi is a technique in which different coloured ceramics are mixed and layered together to make patterns. Wariire technique is my original technique I invented. Wariire is a technique which involves breaking ceramic by hammer (“wari” in Japanese) and seeping black ink in-between the cracks (“ire” in Japanese) and pressing them to make patterns. There are a few Nerikomi artists in the world. Of course I am the only Wariire artist in the world. By using these techniques, I can make stylish and colourful works. I want to introduce these splendid techniques to the world.
