Jess RosenbergContemporary Colored Clay
The gallery is delighted to showcase the contemporary colored stoneware created in the Nerikomi process by Jess Rosenberg.
Jess used a labor-intensive technique of color, form and pattern. She mixed color pigments into wet white clay. Then she layered and compressed the different batches of colored clay to make a block with patterns running through in stripes or swirls.
Jess’ final step of shaping and forming ceramics yields stellar visual effects, only possible through the Nerikomi technique.
“As I continue my exploration of colored clay via Nerikomi, I’m amazed daily at the intricacies inherent in this work and how much more there is to explore and accomplish. Challenges keep me going and I hope to continue with this work for a long time.”
