The pinch pot is the first and most important clay project you might do with your students. Make it a little more interesting and fun by connecting the pinch pot to Chinese culture will not only make this lesson more interesting to teach, but will provide more meaningful connections for your students. The paper vase (which lets students add in more detail) is a great addition to use while you are waiting for the clay to dry and fire. They also look great displayed together.
