Anyone can do this type of construction, not difficult at all, doesn’t require fancy tools (you can do it easily enough on a banding wheel), and it can be used for stuff small to large. It also shows that pinch pots can be other than thick, heavy, and lumpy. I make tokkuri the same way, but just add a few coils at the end to form the neck. The chawan shown were made from a 400g ball to start. I’ll show the trimmed cups in the next post.
