Should I use a beginner pottery wheel or a professional pottery wheel?
Professional pottery wheels are more heavy duty and durable, but they're also more expensive. If pottery is something you're passionate about and you know that you'll be doing it for years to come, then a professional pottery wheel would be a wise investment. If you're working with a more limited budget or view pottery as an occasional hobby, then beginner pottery wheels should be more than adequate for your needs. Many beginners and students also opt for the convenience of a portable pottery wheel or tabletop pottery wheels.
