This rounded bamboo kushi, or comb, has 21 prongs and is 2.25" (5.7 cm) wide.
These combs, or kushi in Japanese are used for creating texture and can make patterns of parallel lines when scraped across the surface of a pot.
Combing may be used to produce a number of effects on greenware, glazed or unglazed products:
- On greenware, the marks then filled with slip, which is later revealed as inlay
- On slip-covered greenware, exposes the contrasting body underneath the slip
- On freshly glazed bisqued ware, reveals the body or another pigment or slip beneath the coat of glaze
- Can be used for scoring.
