“Hand-building” is working with clay by hand using only simple tools, not the pottery wheel. Before potters had the wheel, they were creating beautiful pots and clay forms using clay, their hands and fingers, and basic hand tools. Below are the three most common forms of creating hand built pots: pinch pot, coiling and slab techniques. Most do not realize the infinite world of hand building and the artistic possibilities it opens”
