About Kushi Combs
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.
