Dorothy Fiebleman

American potter, Dorothy Fiebleman, formerly resident of London (from where she was included in many articles in Ceramic Review and numerous British exhibitions) but long term resident now, of Tokoname in Japan, has posted an interview done with her by NHK (Japanese TV) for a programme called ‘Japanophiles’. She talks and demonstrates her own version of the Japanese nerikomi technique – inlaid coloured porcelain sliced exquisitely thinly and laminated into porcelain vessels.

She has long held a high reputation internationally for the stunning technique and delicate forms that she employs making thinner-than-eggshell vessels in nerikomi but with results that feel more Western than Asian. She has blended the two cultural approaches with great finesse.
