Clay handbuilding is a pottery-making technique that involves creating forms without a pottery wheel, using the hands, fingers, and simple tools using clay  handbuilding techniques such as coil structures, slab construction, and pinch pots. The sky is the limit as to what you can make. If you’re interested in trying hand building yourself, all you need is to come to our art studio in McDonough, GA, take some clay and drum up some creative inspiration. Hand-built pottery tends to look more rustic and rough around the edges than pottery thrown on a wheel, which makes handbuilding so unique.
