Q: Pottery School g.) What is the difference between handbuilding and wheel throwing?

A:

Handbuilding

Handbuilding includes a wide range of building methods. Some of these include pinching, coiling, and slab building. These techniques offer the possibility to make everything from sculpture, including figurative and abstract forms to functional objects like bowls, cups, platters and tiles.

 

Wheel Throwing

Wheel throwing involves using the potter's wheel to make objects. This is the method that many functional potters use to make their work. It is the technique that most often comes to mind when one hears the word "pottery".
