* [added his name] Going back to something like making pinch pots, you become a different shape.

Paulus Berenson, a big name in pottery, wrote a whole book about making pinch pot, which potters tend to think of as how they learned, not what they do. Not throwing a pot, the usual potter thing, but rolling a ball of clay and pinching it.

--the book is "Finding One's Way with Clay: Pinched Pottery and the Color of Clay."
