Made this pot in my senior year high school art class. It is made using the Coiling method.
Coiling is one of the most common traditional methods of sculpting clay. It’s a simple process of using your fingers to roll out thin, rounded coils, which you can use in this form or press flat. To create a pot, make a simple base and then wrap the coils around it to build up the pot.
When vase was made up and still moist I took a pointed wood stick and added texture and pattern.
The throat of the vase was big enough for my hand when it was made of wet clay.
Also shown is my favorite hammer.
Pliers are another part of my old tool collection.
