Pinch and coil pot construction

Ceramic Hand-Building Techniques

pinch pots
Pinch Pots
  • A bowl or vessel created with one piece of clay
  • An opening is created by pressing your thumb into the center of the ball of clay
  • Pinch using your thumb and fingers starting at the base and working your way up to the top
  • The finished product

should look something like this

coil pot
Coil Pot
  • A vessel created by attaching

and smoothing coils of clay onto

a base created from a trimmed

slab of clay.

  • The shape of the base determines the shape of the coil pot.
  • At least one side of the coils need to be smoothed to secure the structure, but both can be smoothed if desired.
  • To make the pot expand, place the coils on the outer edge of the rim.
  • To make the pot shrink, place the coils on the inner edge of the rim.
  • REMEMBER, always score and slip when attaching a coil from a new piece of clay.

Hand-Building Project Requirements
  • Design Challenge: How can you create two separate ceramic pieces that interact to form one complete work of art?
  • CREATE 2 POTS THAT INTERACT IN SOME WAY
  • 1 PINCH POT (3” HIGH, 3” DIAMETER)
  • 1 COIL POT (5” HIGH, 3” DIAMETER)
  • SURFACE INCISED DESIGNS
  • 2 CONSTRUCTED ELEMENTS (ATTACHED BY SCORRING AND SLIPPING)
  • ALL SURFACES SMOOTHED WITH WATER AND A BRUSH
  • AT LEAST 3 DIFFERENT COLOR GLAZES
