center your clay. the first time. every time.

What is the QuickCenter System?
The QuickCenter™ is a revolutionary system and method for throwing on the potter's wheel. For any beginning to intermediate-level potter, this process is difficult even though wheel throwing is one of the oldest art forms.

For centuries, civilizations have been studied through their ceramic artifacts and vessels. But the greatest challenge for successful manipulation of clay has always been finding center. Now the QuickCenter™ System revolutionizes wheel throwing. Clay is centered before the wheel begins to spin.

The Quick Center™ reduces the intimidation and frustration that all students experience at first because it completely eliminates free-hand centering by cutting an exact plug of clay and delivering it locked and centered to the wheel head. Because clay is centered before the wheel begins to spin, students can experience the thrill and the art of throwing without losing time and patience getting to this point.

Centering clay on a potter's wheel has never been easier. Students can feel 'center' and develop confidence while successfully throwing on the wheel the very first time with the Brent QuickCenter™.


Who is the QuickCenter for?

schools. hobbyists.
contemporary clay studios.

Teachers with no prior throwing experience can teach students of all ages to use a QuickCenter™. Now ceramic programs can include potter’s wheels, even in elementary grades. Because it's easy to use, students move quickly through the process so that others have a chance to experience throwing on a wheel.

College art students required to take ceramics can now throw for the very first time with success.

Hobbyists who buy a potter’s wheel will have success right from the start. This ability to start quickly, and throw pots and plates successfully, also enables Contemporary Clay Studios to offer wheel throwing classes.


How to use the QuickCenter System

Begin centering up to 4 pounds of clay in three easy steps:

  1. Load the Canister/Plunger with clay by pressing into wedged clay (see photo #1).
  2. Place the Universal Adaptor and Recessed Bat onto the wheel head using the QuickCenter™ bat pins (see photo #2).
  3. Center the Canister/Plunger into the Recessed Bat Set, release the clay and begin throwing (see photo #3).
