I love the simplicity and the graphic quality of Priscilla's work. I like a well-made pinch pot. A pinch pot requires delicate skill and patience.
She says of her work: The technique I use is simple: pinching a porcelain clay body, applying slips for colour. I enjoy exploring the feelings of intimacy and expressiveness that the small scale and the slight unevenness of the pinched surface gives." Although she also makes large work in terra cotta, she adds that "all the pinched bowls I make are the same size: hand-sized – as deep and as wide as the reach of thumb and fingers allow in the pinching process."
She further states, "The bowls are decorated according to a simple dogma rule: the pattern on the inside must also be carried over to the outside surface. The difference between the way the pattern reacts to being placed on a concave or a convex surface is the challenge."
