Thomas Hoadley creates porcelain sculptural objects using the Japanese technique, Nerikomi. Hoadley’s forms reference functional vessels but are, instead, non-functional, sculptural objects.

Nerikomi is a process in which porcelain slabs, colored with stains or oxides, are stacked, folded, pressed into logs, sliced, arranged and pressed into vessel forms. The resulting vessels are thin walled and translucent.
