Presented by the Tasmanian Ceramics Association.
A small ball of clay is opened from the top and gently compressed with the fingers of one hand while being turned by the other. A round symmetrical bowl is created.
Slowly, it is a meditation.
Sometimes two bowls are joined, or the wall is squeezed or fluted, or appendages are attached. The surface is often impressed with shells or other objects to create pattern.
The pinch pot is usually the first thing that the novice or the school child makes with clay. It can be simple and unsophisticated, or in its finished form amazingly beautiful, with the hand of the maker part of its charm.
