Spanish term or phrase: churro
----VIDEO TINAJERIA----
Todo comenzaba con la elaboración de un churro, es un proceso muy manual como podemos observar en las imágenes. Este churro se lo echaban al hombro y la principal característica es que nunca giraba en torno, era la persona con el churro al hombro el que debía dar vueltas y vueltas para formar la estructura de la tinaja.

clay coil
Explanation:
https://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Clay-Pot
Once the clay is warm and pliable, take a fist-sized clump and roll it into a long rope called a coil. The diameter of the coil will determine the thickness of your pot's walls. For your first pots, roll your coils out till they’re a little thicker than a pencil, and about 12 to 24 inches (30 to 60 cm) long, and of uniform thickness.

Churros o bobinas, es uno de los métodos más antiguos de hacer cerámica. Formas de arcilla como cuencos se construyen mediante el uso de churros de arcilla flexible. Colocar uno encima de otro y presionándolos juntos. Las formas creadas con churros, se pueden dejar el interior y exterior de la pieza como decoración o alisarlos con peinado con golpes suaves hasta que la pared sea más delgada, fuerte y tenga la forma deseada.
