Inside the Classroom: How to Throw on the Wheel in Ceramics

In order to make something on the wheel there are steps to be taken. First you have to wedge the piece of clay, then you get your materials ready for the wheel. Next you center the piece of clay and start the process of pulling it. Then you can form the clay into anything you would like. In the video Matt made a wide vase and put a design on it. After the piece has been fired you will glaze it. Glazing is probably my favorite part because you will never know how it’s going to turn out. I hope the video is helpful and you enjoy it.
