Clay pinch pots
Clay is a naturally occurring earth material that can be shaped or molded by adding water. Did you know that in certain places you can dig up clay that’s ready to be sculpted? Clay forms naturally in lake bottoms and marine deposits. Early humans in prehistoric times discovered the useful properties of clay. One of the earliest artifacts ever uncovered is a drinking vessel made of sun-dried clay! Working with clay also has therapeutic benefits and can help reduce stress, foster creativity and promote socialization. How do you feel when working with clay? What do you like best about handling this material? We will create clay pinch pots in this project, which can help us feel both calm and creative.
