Sprigging

Sprigged – a method used to add a small moulded decoration to a pottery vessel while it is still soft.

A negative mould is filled with clay, which can be removed and carefully applied to a surface with a little moisture to soften the join. Once fired, it becomes a part of the vessel.
Usually applied to wheel-made items of simple form.

Not to be confused with Moulded, which is an integral part of the decoration of a moulded vessel.
