A Beautifully Decorated Wheel Thrown Mug Both Inside and Out

Posted On November 2, 2012 5 Comments

Lorna Meaden considers all the details when designing a new form. That’s why when she came up with a new mug form recently, she decided to carry her mishima decoration around the corner of the rim to the inside of the pot. But this decoration didn’t start in the decorating phase. Paying attention to every detail, Lorna decided that it would make more of a visual impact to throw an interior ridge where the mishima decoration would stop and a different glaze would take over – a beautiful touch that makes for a successful form. In this video, an excerpt from her DVD Integrating Form & Surface with Porcelain, she shows us the cool trick she came up with to make the ridge.

After a piece has been carved and bisque fired, inlay slip is applied and allowed to dry before it is removed with a metal rib. This allows Lee to preserve the precision of the carving.

I have found another variation on Mishima that I just had to share today. In this post, ceramic artist Steven Young Lee explains the Mishima variation that works best for his work. Instead of working with leather hard clay, Lee lays a thick coating of slip onto bisqueware and then scrapes it off with a metal rib.

If you frequent Ceramic Arts Daily, you may be familiar with the term Mishima because we’ve posted several different variations on the technique in the past. Mishima is a traditional Korean surface decorating technique that involves inlaying a colored slip into incised lines on leather-hard clay. I have found another variation on Mishima that I just had to share today. In this post, ceramic artist Steven Young Lee explains the Mishima variation that works best for his work. Instead of working with leather hard clay, Lee inlays his slip into bisqueware and then scrapes
it off with a metal rib.
