PINCH AND COIL POT
CONSTRUCTION
Ceramic Hand-Building Techniques
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
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.

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
