Jeff and Judy Goodwin
Jeff and Judy Goodwin use an ancient Japanese clay technique known as neriage (pronounced nair-ee-ah-gee) to create their stunning jewelry. The process begins in their studio where they mix their own recipe for porcelain clay. Stain is added to the porcelain to make several colors. Designs are created by layering colored porcelain in various ways while building patterns into large blocks, or loaves. Each piece of jewelry is sliced from the block and carefully shaped, sanded, and wiped clean with a damp cloth. It is then fired three different times. All color is derived from the clay. No paints, colored glazes, or under glazes are used in the process.
