4. Start to squeeze the clay with your thumb on the inside and your fingers on the outside. Squeeze and turn the clay so the hole that you made with your thumb is stretched out and starts to form a bowl. This is called making a pinch pot because you are pinching your clay into the shape of a pot/bowl. Keep squeezing and stretching the clay until it is stretched out to the size that you want your bowl to be. Hint: If you stretch and squeeze it to much, you clay will become thin and fragile, try to keep it about as thick as a pancake.
