A Potter creates art pieces using clay as their main medium. You might create pieces designed for functional use such as bowls or vases or you may produce work meant for artistic display. Potters use equipment such as a pottery wheel and a kiln and may use techniques such as glazing or decorating. You might create individual pottery pieces for display or for sale or you might develop a collection of works for an exhibition.
Potters need excellent creative skills and must have a good eye for detail. You should be talented at a range of pottery techniques and be able to produce pieces suitable for sale to buyers. You’ll need to be able to address customer needs and be in tune with market demands. If you’re working closely with buyers or other potters you’ll need to be a good communicator.
