Pinch pots start from a ball of clay pinched and manipulated by hand. A surprising variety of pots can be made using the pinch pot technique, and it gives a good introduction to the feel and behaviour of clay. It lends itself well to smaller sculptural works that can be modelled, carved and textured with quick results. Pinching has a calming effect bringing the maker into the moment.
