Pinch Pots

I made porcelain pinch pots.
It took some trial and error to get this far. The porcelain clay flops around as you try to work it and these I did in stages. They aren't supposed to be perfect - I like a certain amount of wobbliness.
 I am very pleased with the effects of  my brush marks in very thin black vitreous slip - picking up the texture on the sponged surfaces. 
More pinch pots to come.

Lovely, especially the charcoal feeling of the stripes
