These gorgeous little pinch pots were made recently by my grade one students after admiring the South African guinea fowl pot (pictured left), which I borrowed from a parent and staff member. (Thanks Mariette!).
The students were shown how to use pinch and pull methods with clay to create a small, round pinch pot which was glazed with orange inside and later painted with black and white paints on the outside.
Students were given a choice of white on black, or black on white and the rows of dots were made with cotton buds.
I think these pots are just perfectly imperfect and look amazing all together. Perhaps I will never let the kids take these home!
