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.

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

Polymer clay


If you just want the joints to move freely, I have had success using eyepins. They are good for small figures. If you would like a more realistic joint, you could use a ball joint method. You can find useful instructional videos on how to make ball joints on youtube.

How do you make plates or bowls that are strong enough for everyday food use and you can use in the dishwasher? What material should you use (what kind of clay or other) and what is the process? Can I use...


You would want to use CERAMIC clay. The easiest way to make dishes is on a potter's wheel, but could be done with rolling pin and bowl / plate / cup to form. Roll clay anwhere from 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick, using flour or cornstarch to prevent sticking to work surface / tools / forms. Lay clay over form and trim off excess clay. As it will be very soft, you may want to leave it uncovered for a day or two so it can dry out and harden to near-leather hard.
You CAN use your oven to fire (bake), and for safe food / dishwasher use, after first firing, glaze with non-lead, non-toxic pottery glaze. *Careful not to get too thick as glaze WILL run during the second firing.
Your local Arts & Crafts / Pottery store should have all you need to make what you want, as well as DIY help on / with all aspects of pottery for even the greenest of beginners.
