For making large pieces of containers, jugs and jars, ‘coil’ and ‘throw’ techniques are very common. In this technique the vessel’s bottom is beaten out on the wheel head and is thrown in such a way so that it can go very far. When it reaches the desired height further sausage is applied on it. The products made by following this method are mixture of throwing and hand forming.
In the throwing pottery the throwing rib is an important potter’s tool. It is generally a smooth and flat hardwood piece fitted in hand having one curved and one erect border but both are very sharply finished.
