Rustic Hand-formed Pot in Marigold


What we have here is a completely hand-formed small pinched and glazed, rounded and rustic vessel. No other tools were used, as a point of pride.  I start with a ball of clay and slowly walk around the studio while methodically pinch-forming each one.  A natural result can be random exterior cracking which forms as the piece is expanded from the inside. It’s a feature I love and have learned how to foster, yet I still don’t quite know how each will turn out. This particular one grew outward and then turned inward to a sort of belly button. Depending on their opening shape, these vessels can be used for flowers or condiments or anything else you can think of. See all the photos, as each pinch pot is utterly unique in this world.
