Slab Construction

This method is when you roll the clay into sheets, you can form the sheets of clay using molds or you can let the clay stiffen a bit to create geometric forms. This is a popular method in contemporary ceramics.

Pinching Pots

Created from a single lump of clay, pinch pots are often the first forms created when beginning to work in clay. These pots are made by literally pinching the clay into the shape you desire, no other tools are necessary.

Slip cast

Despite the perception of some that slip casting = cheating/not handmade as it's deemed as a technique of mass-production, this method has generated many unique forms and ideas to develop.


Spattering

Spattering is more or less a form of spraying, where, because of the nature of the tools used, a broken and uneven spray is achieved.

Brushing

This technique tends to leave its mark since you can’t fully control the streaks left behind from the bristles. However, you are able to cover large areas with very little amounts of glaze as well as use the softness of a brush to address the details of more decorative pieces.

Bokashi or fukizumi

A glaze is applied over the surface using a brush or spray to add shading to the color.

Essential handmade pottery tips


Where Is the Best Place to Work?

Clay is best kept to a room or an outbuilding of its own. Clay dust is fine and will not be picked up or contained by household vacuum sweepers.

Don’t expect to be amazing right away

Well, creating pottery pieces is not an easy task. It is an art that requires regular hard work and patience. You’re not going to create amazing things right away; it will take time.

What Is The Best Texture For You

A good thing to know when selecting your clay is if there is grog (ground up fired clay), sand, both, or none in your clay. Your selection will depend on what you are using your clay for and what skill level you are.
