Here at The Ceramic Shop, we carry all models of Brent pottery wheels. These well-made workhorses are an excellent choice for your studio or classroom; each wheel comes with a ten-year warranty and loads of extras. We often receive calls inquiring about the difference between the different Brent wheel models, as they do look alike for the most part. The main difference is in the amount of clay each wheel can handle. The Brent B, for example, can hold up to 150 lbs. of clay (which is plenty for most potters!), while the Brent C can hold 225 lbs. These specs are listed on each wheel’s product page.
If you are looking to add a Brent wheel to your studio or classroom, but aren’t sure what model is the best choice for you, we’re happy to help you figure it out! Give us a call at 215-427-9665 and our knowledgeable staff will help you out!
