  • Ikomi, or porcelain-slip casting, is often considered a technique used for the mass-production of ceramics. However, the Seto potter Nagae Shigekazu is a master of this technique, and uses it to its fullest potential, creating highly artistic and aerodynamic silhouettes in his porcelain works that are truly one of a kind. Believing in the notion that "technique should be shared by everyone,"�h Nagae shares in this book the secrets to his originally developed technique, both in great depth and in clear and concise language. This book is a compilation of a monthly series featured at www.yakimono.net. A wonderful "how to" book on mastering the art of ikomi slip casting, a technique that allows for a precise and delicate aesthetic. In Japanese only, but a full English translation is slated for publication in late 2005, from Coherence Inc.
