How to Buy a Potter's Wheel
Buying a potter's wheel (pottery wheel) should hopefully be an exciting process, but it can also be rather intimidating. There are a number of variables you need to consider before making the big decision as to the purchase of your own potter's wheel.

Where to Find a Kiln
Kilns are usually large, heavy, and expensive pieces of equipment for potters. Before you buy your kiln, find out more of what you want and need in a kiln. After you know these things, it is time to find that kiln!

Just as with buying any used item, however, it is always a good idea to know what you need to look for and the questions you need to ask before you conclude your purchase.

Kiln Buying Basics
There are many considerations to take into account before you buy a kiln. Buying a kiln is a major expenditure; take the steps to ensure that you will be happy with your purchase for years to come.
