Marbling is a result of several differently colored slips that are joggled or combed together. This mixing of slips creates a marbled effect that can be seen on both refined and coarse earthenwares. Marbling is generally more mixed and free form than formal combing.
The genre for this stylistic element depends on a combination of decorative technique, color, and element.
