Pinch Pot CreaturesPinch Pot Creatures are a FUN way to teach additive clay techniques to the basic pinch pot method.

I am kicking myself, because I forgot to take pictures of everyone’s art before I sent them home-there were some really cute ones I didn’t get pictures of too -elephants, birds, cats… 🙁
