Potters wheels

Back to basics – what is an electric potter’s wheel?

A portable pottery wheel is a machine that is used for throwing or shaping round ceramic wear, such as pots, mugs, vases, or jugs and is essential to a potter’s craft. The clay is placed on the wheel and spins at a steady rate whilst the potter holds the clay and moulds it into a circular shape.

Traditionally, these were powered by your foot using a kick-wheel whilst slowly turning the clay. Whilst this is the more romantic idea of pottery, the reality is difficult to master!Electric pottery wheels allow you to center faster and move the pottery wheel precisely. The variable speeds allow you to switch seamlessly between centering, throwing and trimming – without having to worry about rhythmically keeping your feet steady and the speed constant.Electric potter’s wheels are a lightweight and faster way to craft clay. We offer the most robust, reliable & compactly designed electric pottery wheel that is for sale in the UK!
