Naomi Lindenfeld is known for hand building utilizing colored porcelains. This technique is known as Nerikomi, a Japanese ceramic technique.  Each piece begins with a combination of colored porcelain pieces that are assembled, rolled, and folded to create multicolored veins of colored clay.  It can then be thrown on the wheel or rolled into desired thickness to be used in slab construction of the finished form. Typically, Lindfield's wheel thrown pieces are carved and or faceted post throwing.
