Kurinuki is a traditional method of Japanese handbuilding. The word means “carving out.” A solid block of clay is minimally shaped and then carved to create the interior and exterior spaces. Spontaneous and showing the marks of the making process, kurinuki pots tend to be more alive and sculptural than other hand building methods.

A great clay experience for beginners, kurinuki can also be satisfying for experienced clay artists. Some of the forms made using Kurinuki include yunomi (teacups), boxes, vases, and sippers.
