Miki Glasser is an artist from Maine based in New Orleans. Mishima is the technique Miki uses to achieve fine blue lines on the surface of her pots.Using a needle tool she inscribes her drawings directly into the surface of the clay. A thin layer of blue glaze is then applied to the lines and scraped or wiped off the surface, leaving only the delicate line trapped in the clay. After the piece is fired an additional layer of clear glaze is applied over the top. This means that the drawings on my pots are similar to tattoos- they are embedded in the clay and will never fade or change, even after years of loving use!
