This first group of vases utilizes white Kohiki slip.

Kohiki slip was used centuries ago in Korea to thinly cover their dark clay with a layer of white while allowing hints of the darker clay to be seen.

Akira Sataki took this idea to a new level with his patterned kohiki slip creations.

This variation uses a thick brushed layer of this slip and a multistep process which forms shaped crackles along the brush strokes, exposing the layer of clay beneath.

This allows glazes and stains to be added to the crevices as well.
I love the unexpected variations of the crackles which suggest waves and cracked earth
