just enrolled in a ceramics class. these are my first pinch pots...i've never worked with raw clay before so try not to laugh too hard. Wink

my first ever attempt...its wonky as anything but i love the colour the glaze turn out, its so warm, almost alive..like amber.


my 'chicken' pot.


any comments (or advice!) are more than welcome.

Excellent glaze application!!! Did you dip tem? You chose great colours! The pieces are cool, I like misshapoen! The chicken looks really great....is it the head of a chicken squawking?

I'm not really sure....:-/

they're not dipped. the glaze was applied straight out of the pot with a brush. i dribbed a turquoise glaze (over the blue) around the tail of the chicken and and yellow around the lip of the fist pot.

Good job! I love the first one! The glaze is really nice.

Don't despair of pinch pots. They're really difficult to do well! When I used to teach pottery, I NEVER started with pinch pots because people would get so discouraged.
