I have now made bread four times, and I can clearly see improvement at many points. Making the dough properly is one of those. When the dough was flexible and not sticky the results were a lot better.
I think what makes the bread such a unique way of making stuff with your hands, is that you are not completely in control of comes out of the oven. There have been breads I didn't even recognize afterwards. But that is what I find the most interesting part of making the bread.
I have tried many different movements with the dough, and I have a few favorite ones. Especially when the dough is good I like to stretch it as much as possible, either make it long or pizza-shaped. After that you can just make something out of it with folding and regular moves, but I prefer using my hand as a shape because the results get a lot less predictable.
Form and Senses:
Although the shapes I made were mostly random I did try to make it look good, sometimes a few random moves resulted in something I didn't like and I would start again. Besides that you think about what will happen to the bread in the oven, controlling this is only possible after a lot of experience.
Ideas and Concepts:
Making something nice out of the dough requires some creativity. Shaping it around your hand or between your fingers can already give many different types of shapes. I found those results are sometimes even better than when you are trying to make a certain intentional shape.
