For sale now with a variety of cost effective options: kits which include wheel and essential items and packages which include everything you could need to start creating your clay masterpieces!


This ‘hidden gem’ of a wheel has been developed in the UK to a unique design by a world leading Engineer, ex Rolls Royce.

Designed, engineered and assembled in Hampshire, UK.



Our Potter’s Wheels are rugged, powerful and deliver constant torque so critical for clay working and often lacking in comparable products. Most importantly full torque is maintained at all speeds.


Components are the best of their kind available and every care and attention is taken in their assembly. Should a component fail through normal use, we will be pleased to repair or replace it at our discretion for a period of five (5) years  from the date of supply.


The motor can be reversed at the flick of a switch – a feature greatly appreciated by left-handed potters. When not in use, the units can be stored or stacked on one another, freeing valuable space.

A joy to use!

Discus pottery wheels are a joy to use for both beginners and professionals alike, ideal for home users, hobbyists, classrooms, adult education, special needs, professionals and small production runs.


Unique design

Discus Wheels unique design of a motorised bowl and separate electronic mains power controller enables it to be easily lifted, moved, cleaned and stored. (Bowl 6.5 Kgs, Control box 5Kgs, Pedal 500g).
Easy to clean after use, just disconnect the bowl from the control cable and move to a sink where waste water can be tipped out and the bowl wiped clean.
The intelligent electronic controller combined with a powerful constant torque 24v DC motor, in the wheel, provides the means for the Discus potter’s wheel to throw higher loads of clay than its size might suggest.

Happy Customers

Easy to put together and get started. I’m a hobby potter and a complete beginner on the wheel, so more practice than productivity at this stage, but the product suits my needs well. A useful set of batts is supplied. I’m glad I chose the one with the reverse direction switch, as sometimes I find it more natural to work on the left of the pot.
