Wheel throwing is typically involves shaping clay on the “potter’s wheel”. The wheel’s centrifugal force allows potters to create vessels with precision and quality, allowing for more refined and thinner vessels.
The clay is left to dry for a few days after the throwing process. When it becomes drier, it can then be trimmed to remove the excess clay.
The modifications such as pattern-carving trimming or finishing, polishing or the attaching of handles is done at this stage as well to produce the final refined form.
It is ready to be fired. Usually several pieces are fired at one time. The weather must be good, the ground must be warm and the pots themselves can’t be too cool.
The mound is then covered and wood tinder is set on fire along the bottom to start the blaze. The firing is part of what gives each pot its uniqueness. Firing completes the process.
