Making pinch pots is one of my favorite things.  I got a bit adventurous with this series ... this little one has a sprinkle of crushed glass fired onto the clay along with a decorative bit of fine silver metal clay slip.  The firing temperature is well beyond the melting point of the silver, where it "crawls" up into little balls along the painted line. 

To make this series even more special, I made sterling silver metal clay ring bases ... each one unique, each one pinched into shape leaving the raw edges ... just like the earthenware clay vessels.
