How To: Joining

If you are joining flat pieces to another flat surface, you will want to be sure of a good bond. Scratch the surface, coat one piece with clay slurry and press the two together. This will ensure a strong joint as long as both slabs are moist to begin with. Clay slurry is just clay mixed with water.

How To: Coil Pots

Coiling clay pots is a simple process of layering coils or other shapes, one at a time, then welding the layers together to create a solid form. It is an extremely versatile technique that is good for beginners but can be used for great craftsmanship and artistry. Even those who are new to clay should be able to make large and intriguing pottery using the coiling method.

How To: Slabwork

Today, slab pots and slab-building techniques are experiencing a renewed popularity. Modern potters and ceramic sculptors have embraced the slab.

How To: Pinchpots

Many people enjoy making pinch pots because of their relatively easy construction and forgiving form. To begin, choose a clay to use. There are different clay types that have different firing requirements and can be used in different ways. Next, form the pinch pot by rolling the clay into a ball and thinning out the walls with your fingers. Let the pot dry completely before firing it or baking it. Finally, add any embellishments to the surface of the pot with paint, varnishes, or glaze.
