Hi friends, I recently started a new hobby and I took over the kids’ old playhouse in the backyard to house my new pottery wheel and tools and contain the mess a bit while I try and figure out what I am doing. Ironically as I write this I am getting ready to move the wheel into the basement as it is getting too chilly to work with wet clay in an unheated shed. It’s great in the summer tho!
Disclaimer: I am not a professional potter (in case that’s not painfully obvious) this is a hobby and this is a tour of my pottery shed. I also make a pot in this video, my technique is lacking and I probably use too much water. As I said in the video, this is not a tutorial, it’s a vlog. For god’s sake don’t take any of this as advice for pottery, I’m just doing what works for me. Below are some pottery channels I like who know what they are talking about, follow them, not me for pottery stuff.

Now, about the pottery wheel, Vevor sent me this to try out. I don’t feel comfortable doing a review because I am not familiar with other pottery wheels (other than using a tabletop one 20 years ago and a treadle one in high school) but this feels sturdy (nothing like the pottery wheel toy my kids used to have) and I am happy with what I am making on it. Vevor is offering a discount to viewers if they want to purchase one tho. I have the 14″ pottery wheel. You can see all of the options in the Vevor store.

I hope you enjoyed this look behind the scenes at one of the things I do just for fun. Happy crafting!
