Tip

Getting Started with Pottery


Other than just being famous for the scene in the movie Ghost, pottery is a wonderful craft that can be incredibly relaxing and creative.
It is not easy to get started with pottery at home without some basic knowledge and tools, so you might want to begin with a short course in pottery at a local center.

But once you get started, here are some tips for you:

    1. Low-fire clays are good for bright colors and detailed patterns. But they need a good glaze to help seal them against water damage.
    2. High-fire clays are much more waterproof, just not as good with bright colors.
    3. Pottery by hand this is the simplest method when you do not have a potters wheel and are keeping your projects small. You take a small amount of clay and work it with your hand. Once you have shaped it, you can use a damp sponge to smooth the surfaces.
    4. A potters wheel is not something most people have at home but if you do get access to one, it is great for round, symmetrical objects. If you use a potters wheel you will need a kiln at the end for finishing.
    5. Once you have put your pottery in the kiln (get advice about how many hours your particular piece needs), you can now paint and glaze your piece.
    Pottery is a complicated art form that has many stages but it is really worth it when you get to produce a piece that you have made yourself from start to finish.

    Good Luck

The pottery wheel seems more like a joke than anything else its not molding the clay its just pushing it around weve tried more clay and it realy does nothing whats the deal


Sure it's a joke, it's a battery powered piece of plastic, but I guarantee you that if that machine will turn under a light load then you can do some fantastic work with it if you're willing to learn. Do a little looking on youtube, you can find lots of information concerning potter's wheels there.
