Pinch Pots

Each year in October we invite the Georgetown nurses to create pinch pots during one of their monthly administrative meetings. Many nurses come to the meeting excited by the opportunity to create art.


Pinch pots are very simple and are created using a technique believed to be 12, 000 years old- one of the first ways that people formed clay objects. The repetitive pinching of the pot and its circular shape can make the creation process very calming.

For our nurses, the creation process stirred up conversation, provided a space for relaxation and allowed for the creation of beautiful pottery!
