The Potter's wheel

Potter's wheel at the Askott pottery workshop in Paralimni, Cyprus In pottery, a potter's wheel is a machine used in the shaping of round ceramic wares. The wheel may also be used during the process of trimming excess body from dried wares and for applying incised decoration or rings of color.

Use of the potter's wheel became widespread throughout the Old World but was unknown in the Pre-Columbian New World, where pottery was hand-made by methods that included coiling and beating.

The techniques of jiggering and jolleying can be seen to be an extension of the potter's wheel: in jiggering, a shaped tool is slowly brought down onto plastic clay body that has been placed on top of a rotating plaster mould. The jigger tool shapes one face, whilst the mould the other. The term is specific to the shaping of flatware, such as plates, whilst a similar technique, jolleying, refers to the production of holloware, such as cups.
