Next, a demo of putting two pinch pots together to make a box or creature. In this demo you will learn to join clay by slipping and scoring. This is the best method for joining clay and you will be using it all the time.
We'll also look at how to make a bowl - if you're chosing to make a bowl then it must have a foot ring to keep it off the kiln shelf so the glaze does not stick and ruin the project. Again you will join the clay by slipping and scoring.
Notice that a box's top will be cut with a 'key' so it does not slide off. You can also put in tabs on the inside to keep the top snug - but not too snug!
If you are making a creature you will be cutting the hole in the base when the project is leather hard.
Review terms, wet clay, leather soft, leather hard, bone dry.
