Much like budget wheels, portable pottery wheels can be used as a beginner wheel for children and adults alike. However, these wheels are much more smaller than the budget and standard ones meaning they can only carry a small load of clay. They are more common to be electric wheels and their size and weight makes them ideal for travel.
For the potter who consider portability to be one of the biggest factors in buying a wheel, these wheels are perfect for you. Not only do they make it easier for you to move around in your studio (or to even move studios in the future), they also make it possible for you to bring a wheel anywhere and show off your skills making them very popular with teachers.
