Kurinuki Artistry of the Highest Order
くり抜き (kurinuki) - "to hollow" - a traditional technique to make pottery from carving away from a single block of clay. Hollowing out clay in this way is a slow and meditative process that produces truly unique one-of-a-kind ceramics that can never be repeated.
