Re: Pinch Pot Ideas and Creativity Questions


Date: Fri Aug 23 2002 - 06:50:48 PDT

I make pinch pots that are incised with designs or painted slip designs,
burnished, then fired. I cannot pit fire....but you get nice results without
glazing.....or you can just glaze the incised design. I give my advanced
students alot of problem solving, usually with a title, for the basis of
their project. ie.... "Get fastened' they had to use slab method and it had
to show a way it was fastened.....either out of clay or using something on
the finished fired project....for example someone used a very large safety
pin....or made a zipper out of clay. Usually get alot of great results.
