The potter begins by preparing the terracotta clay. This involves wedging or kneading the clay to remove air bubbles and ensure its consistency and uniformity. The clay is then shaped into workable forms such as blocks or balls, ready to be transformed into pottery. Wheel Throwing Using a pottery wheel, the potter can create a wide range of terracotta vessels. The wheel spins as the potter shapes the clay with their hands, creating bowls, cups, plates, vases, and other functional or decorative forms. The potter’s skill and technique determine the shape, size, and design of the final piece.
