Pinch pots are a form of pottery created through a pinching method. These pots have been created from ancient times to contemporary living. Pinch pots can be both functional and used as a drinking cup or small bowl, or can even be turned into something ornamental. They are great for making vessels, decorations, and even plant pots such as bud vases. Pinch pots are strong vessels that have been created across cultures and times.
