Kurinuki is a Japanese method of carving a pot out of a solid block clay. The first class students will receive 2 solid blocks of clay and tools to use to carve out the interior and shape and hone the exterior to make 2 ceramic cups. We will use a variety of rasps, knives and ceramic carving tools to make a functional cup out of a block of clay.
