Making a Slab Pitcher
Slab building is a hand-building pottery technique that involves creating forms using flat sheets of clay. The process starts by rolling out a flat piece of clay to a consistent thickness using a rolling pin or slab roller. Once you have a flat piece of clay, you can cut it into various shapes to create the walls of your pottery forms.
Slab building is a popular technique for potters of all skill levels because it offers more control over the form and allows for the creation of pieces that may be difficult or impossible to achieve using other methods. Additionally, slab building is a versatile technique that can be used to create both functional and decorative pieces, from plates and bowls to vases and sculpture.
