How to make pinched vases

Creating pinched vases is so fun and easy to do! Here are the different steps in creating a pinched vase:

1. Shape 2 balls of clay in about the same size. 2. Make a hole with your thumb. 3. Start pinching with you thumb and fingers.

4. Don't make the top too thin since they're going to be combined. 5. Use the needle tool to score. 6. Add slip which will work like glue (slip is dry clay and water mixed).

7. Push the pieces together and twist to attach even more. 8. Use a rib to clean up the surface. 9. Cut a hole at the top with the needle tool.

Lots of love,
