Another technique that is used in pottery is called throwing or more commonly called now as wheel-throwing or turning. While it is the most difficult technique to master, it is certainly the most rewarding and the key to it is simply practice. The process involves placing a lump of clay at the center of a wheel and pulling the sides as the wheel turns until a cylinder is formed. From here, it is up to the potter to cut, carve, shape and trim their pot to whatever they desire using tools that we provide below.


Throwing tools are much like handbuilding tools with many of the basic pottery tools used for both techniques. For throwing beginners, a basic group of tools might include elephant ear sponges, cutting wire, needle tools, calipers, a rib or edger, and a potter’s knife. If you are not able to find some of the tools you need in throwing here, you will most likely find them in handbuilding tools.
