The technique is simple; the results are gorgeous! Susan Halls has created an array of refined, sophisticated and incredibly modern-looking projects that are perfect for beginners, yet enticing for more seasoned ceramicists. The pieces range from a mug, vase, and jug to a bowl, teapot, and triple herb planter, and they start with a basic pinch pot before moving on to wider, taller, and more composite forms, all with stunning options for color and surface decoration. And, since many of the items can be made with easily found air-drying clay, no kiln's required!nbsp;

"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." Home, Garden, and DIY May 2014 newsletter
