Utilizing techniques readers may have learned long ago in summer camp, like making pinch pots, Susan shows how easy it is to create a wealth of ceramic forms that are refined and incredibly modern looking. She begins with simple shapes anyone can make, like the classic pinch pot, and then moves on to pinching a sphere, a wide bowl, a trumpet shape, and finally a cylinder. From there Susan demonstrates how easy it is to cut, alter, and combine these shapes to make more complex forms.

"With a focus on ceramic techniques that require only hands and basic tools, Pinch Pottery allows crafters to eschew expensive equipment and simply start creating -- no pottery wheel required. Potter Susan Halls' teaching style is wonderfully clear and accessible, and her coverage of basic pinch pottery shapes, methods, and surface treatments is further enhanced by up-close, photographic instructions. The nine featured designs include timeless standards such as a vase and a bowl as well as more unusual pieces such as a teapot and an hors d'oeuvres tray. Once you've mastered these handbuilding essentials, try taking your decorative skills up a notch with Maureen Mills' Surface Design for Ceramics."
