Summary

Learn how to master one of the most ancient yet simple and appealing ceramics techniques. Taught with a modern approach by a master potter, this amazing collection of pinched projects is the perfect place to start your new ceramics hobby or to explore new ways to shape clay as a more experienced crafter.

Pinching is a wonderfully direct method of interacting with clay that allows for making a range of forms and styles. Projects are simple and small and require only a few tools and your own hands. Begin a new adventure with fabulous pinched ceramics and learn everything from choosing clay and a style of decoration, to firing and beyond:

  • Ranging from functional wares to purely decorative sculptural forms, each project is explained with step-by-step sequences and plenty of options for surface decoration.
  • Fully cross-referenced throughout, there is a wealth of choice and styles to mix and match to make each project truly unique
  • A gallery of makers provides added inspiration and shows the potential of this underrated making method.
This book proves that pinching is a way of working equal to all other methods and that it can produce items of refinement and sophistication.
