combined pinch and coil pot.

(i really proud of this one it was my third attempt at a pinch pot and unlike the others it actualy looks like a pot. a proper pot. Grin ...unlike my first attempts which resembled something you would expect from a pre-school play dough session. see? http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=326833.0 )



i decided to go with a simple white glaze allowing the shape to be the focus of the this pot.

couple of shots pre firing.

Very lovely!! QUITE an improvement from from your first pot (which, like you said, at least the glaze came out beautifully!). I've worked with clay for years, and still don't have it down. It can be tricky, just keep with it. There's nothing more rewarding than pulling a piece you made fresh out of the kiln and it looks absolutely wonderful Smiley Good luck on your future endeavors, looking forward to seeing more of your ceramics from class!

Wow, it's lovely!  I think your choice to keep the color simple was brilliant--the shape is really engaging and unique.  I learned pinch and coil pots at summer camp back in the day, and I can't believe that something this edgy and professional can come out of them!  This really takes these methods to a whole new level!

Good choice on the glaze, really accentuates the curves but still keeps it simple.  Cheesy
