Coil Pots


Step by step guide to making coil pots
1 make a thumb pot and put water in it. Mix it round to make 'slip'
2 roll out clay to the thickness of a finger, making sure it is the same thickness all along it
3 curl it round so it makes a circle and score the ends with a clay knife before 'glueing' them together with slip
4 score it along the length and 'paint' slip along it as if you are glueing it
5 put another long strip of clay you have made along it, having made sure you score that one, as well
6 push down between the two coils of clay to make a smooth wall
