Pinch Pots

After struggling to get into the ceramics studio I bought some basic air drying clay and work on making a collection of small pinch pots to get used to using clay and my hands, as well as have a body of work to start from.

I wanted to try and use the fact that clay holds memory to my advantage so I overworked the clay before forming it into pinch pots, and unsurprisingly they all collapsed when they eventually dried. Some held their shapes, but most turned into crude flat discs. While these were wholly unsuccessful I was glad to get my hands in some clay and also to produce a collection of something.
