I’ve been having fun making small boxes from pinch pots with my layered colored clay.

After pinching a bowl,  I then square the shape and push it in on each side. I make a slab lid and pinch in the sides to hug the bottom.  When it dries some I carve into the surface and follow the pattern in the colored clay.  They have a rounded look, have some texture from the carving and I think that they’re pretty sweet.

These boxes are stunning! I love the combination of the fluid lines of colored clay and the carved texture. Beautiful.
