3 1.You will need a clay board, a clay knife, an old brush and three pieces of clay.

4 2. Form a ball with each piece of clay.

5 3. Press your thumb into one of the clay balls and gently squeeze between thumb and fingers.

6 4. Do this several times turning the ball around each time. The walls of the pot should be of even thickness.

7 5. Tap them gently on the board to flatten the rim.
