There are many different tools that the potter can use. One of our posts is dedicated to hand-building pottery. We chose to highlight this technique because it is the simplest version of working with clay. There is no need for a potter’s wheel. It creates a starting point for the novice potter. Some choose to advance to the use of a pottery wheel after they have mastered the hand-building techniques. There are also many who wish to go no further and just want to enjoy this way of working with clay.
