Two Pinch Pots Joined to make a Hollow Sphere

  • When you have closed the sphere and smoothed the seam, tap it with the paddle to remove lumps.

  • Gently move it into the shape you want for your box.

  • If there is too much air inside, and the clay won’t go into the shape you want, pierce it with a needle tool to release some air.
