Anne Mossman

About the Workshop

Anne Mossman will be presenting a short workshop to demonstrate her techniques for nerikomi (coloured clay patterning). The vessels will be created using hand building to create an understanding of methods of colouring clay and several patterning techniques.

The workshop will demonstrate:

  • adding a coloured stain to porcelain
  • building a palette of colours
  • using stained porcelains to build up a pattern block (nerikomi)
  • how slices from the block are used to form a patterned cup with patterned handle and slip cast base
  • finishing methods for nerikomi vessels

Anne Mossman - Artist Statement

"I have found pattern making by layering and manipulation to be a very accessible and spontaneous way of expression. I am intrigued by the shift of lines and the creation of patterns arising from quite subtle movements of the coloured clay bodies.

My early nerikomi work was characterised by intricate patterns and small delicate vessels and for a period I slip cast thin pattern pieces into moulds.

More recent work has larger gestural swathes of colour loosely layered and hand formed into large vessels. My influences come from geologic formations which have undergone the same shifts and movements but over eons. I’m originally from New Zealand, which is a country thrust up by relatively recent violent ruptures in the earth’s crust, the scars of which are part of my visual lexicon."
