Pinch Pot Pair

You are again asked to begin with an initial ball of clay and “open the solid. In this project you will be learning the ins and outs of creating pinch pots and creating a pair, one that flares out and one that is more closed.

Goal: Create two well-formed pinch pots.
Your pots must:
• Demonstrate your ability to create both an “open” mouth and a “closed” mouth
• Have evenly pinched walls that are no more than 3/8 inch thick
• Demonstrate a carefully planned and pressed or inscribed all-over texture.
• Demonstrate careful attention to craftsmanship, with no evident cracks or crumbs
• Have your name or stamp on the bottom
• Be thoughtfully and carefully glazed
• Be drawn in your sketchbook
