I was asked recently about Chinese "Stirred" wares that were claimed to have been abandoned because of the difficulty of mixing and firing two different clays mixed together.  Far from being abandoned it was developed in Japan as Neriage and in other places as Agate Ware.  The top picture is of a small Japanese bowl, maker unknown.  Zenji Miyashita made the drinking cup with blue and white decoration - a modern form of "stirred".
