"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.
Pinch method is similar to the way the Native Americans shaped clay into useful pots.
Coils of clay can be used to build bowls, vases and other forms in various shapes and sizes.
Slabs of clay may be placed over rocks, bowls, plastic forms etc. to create interesting shapes.
