Moriage, pronounced More-ee-a-gay, is to pile up. It refers to liquid clay (slip) relief decoration. It was done by slip trailing or hand rolling and shaping clay on items of Nippon. Moriage may be applied before or after application. Often the designs are slightly enameled over, more so when outlining is needed, or if a lacy effect is desired. Most often the moriage designs are matted and the backgrounds of the wares on which they appear have variegated tones and muted hues. This lended more depth to the applied designs and visually it was quite effective. They are innumerable and varied. They include border trimmings, lacy designs, floral motifs, birds, animals and landscapes. This type of ornamentation has been used for over two hundred years and is quite predominate on export wares, produced since the Nippon era, 1891 - 1921, and through to World War II. Moriage pieces were often unmarked and were known for their highly stylized decorations and gilding.
