Pinch Pot Bowl

My pinch pot is simply made out of clay. To create the bowl I used the pinching method in order to make the pot, and then for the feet of my pot are just little cylinders attached as animal feet. My design I was going for was a pig with simple features such as, feet a nose and ears. Then I used the sgraffito technique to create little marks in the skin to look like the fine hairs pigs have. From my personal view, I think that the top bowl part is successful because it has a smooth top and edges as well as the clean and careful design on the outside. The idea of a pig to be a pinch pot bowl juxtaposes very well together because of the thought of a piggy bank. And the bowl can represent the bank part of the pig.

If I could start completely over on my pinch pot I think that I would change my design and make more of a sgraffito imprint instead of more clay appearance. And for the feet of the pot I would make more of s round or circular plain stand just to keep the base simple but the overall design more complex.
