For over twenty years, potters have been turning to Pacifica Pottery Wheels for continuously-improved machine design. That’s right – Pacifica Pottery Wheels are fabricated with the artist in mind. Over the years, the company has taken into consideration valuable feedback from actual users of the wheel, resulting in a product that has truly been altered to meet studio needs. In particular, Pacifica Pottery Wheels are known for their torque and power – if you’re a pottery working in large amounts of clay, consider the G400 for throwing works up to 80 lbs., and the G800 for works up to 100 lbs.
These wheels deliver lots of horsepower, but they are belt-driven – this mean that even at slow speeds, the Pacifica Potter Wheel is powerful but quiet. Pacifica Wheels are also known for their ‘Magic Pedal’, which is simply an incredibly sensitive pedal that allows the artist to move fluidly between fast, torque-heavy motions and slower more delicate moves. Each Pacifica Pottery Wheel comes with a two-piece splash pan for easy clean-up, as well as a heavy-duty 13” aluminum wheel head.
