Wheel head


The wheel had been stored without being cleaned after its last use. I've managed to get the head cleaner although there is some pitting where the old clay was the thickest. I've also been working on the wood which is very dry. I had to reattach the foot rest as it'd been broken off when it was moved readying it for listing on eBay.

I am so enjoying this vicariously, indeed i helped moved a wheel yesterday for a friend.
There is something magic in poetia (whoops, potentia) about pottery wheels.

This wheel is beautiful. It has been neglected of late but the movement works perfectly. I put one coat of enamel on the inside of the tray today. I think it'll need three.

I bought mine for $A90 but I believe it to be worth about $A200 - they tend not to sell at all on eBay
