Throwing or wheel-thrown

A pottery-making process that uses a rotating disk called a potter’s wheel. Clay is placed at the center of the wheel and molded into a cylinder. The mouth and sides are shaped before being removed from the disk to dry.

Potters then trim off excess clay, carve and reshape the piece until they add on handles, spouts, or important attachments. Throwing is not easy. It requires a lot of persistence and consistent practice to be able to produce quality ceramic pieces.
