I had a mail the other day from my potter friend John Mathieson(he makes some lovely pots, check him out). Here's a picture of John with some of his pots.
He's selling some equipment. Blogger Matt bought one of the Shimpo wheels recently and is really pleased with it. I had a go on it the other day and it's really good, so if you're on the lookout for a professional quality potter's wheel or pugmill at a bargain price, see below:-
Shimpo wheel and Potclays
pugmill for sale.
'I have a Shimpo RK 10 wheel with remote foot control for sale at £500,
and a Potclays 7040 pugmill (230 volts) for sale at £1000 (list £1500 +
This equipment was bought for the school where I taught to refurbish
the workshop after a fire; the school was rebuilt as an Academy at a
cost of £26 million but without a ceramics workshop. The wheel is
boxed, the pugmill is still wrapped - neither has ever been used and
both are in mint condition.'
