Forming or "throwing" a pot on the potter's wheel

Internet Pottery Suppliers

I frequently am asked where to get a potters wheel or other supplies so I have added this page of links to pottery related businesses who have web pages.

I am no longer updating or adding links to my link pages due to a shortage of time and large numbers of requests. If you find links that do not work let me know and I will take them off when I have time. Thank You.

Books

 

Pottery and Clay Books This is a whole page devoted to books.

I wanted a little more room to recommend some books so I developed a seperate page for them. Just click on the underlined Pottery and Clay Books. There is a link there to bring you back here.

Or try Barnes & Noble with your own search.

"Pottery" will give you 1700 + hits, many not relevant. Try "pottery clay" or if you are interested in a specific area "pottery wheel" or "pottery hand" or pottery thrown" or "pottery glaze. (don't use the quote marks " ")

 

Potters Guide (Source book for potters) http://www.pottersguide.org     Pottery the ART -- How to instuctoins for making pottery. A lot of good information here. http://www.members.tripod.com/kengeorgepottery/
