car tire potters wheel Car Tire Pottery WheelMississippian Hillar Bergman is known, first and foremost, as a musician—he plays the fiddle. His YouTube channel features several interesting videos describing his wonderful “post-apocalyptech” potter’s wheel, and demonstrating his skillful use thereof. (Including one in which he’s mounted it to a trailer hitch so he can use it at a lakeside campsite.) It’s just an old wheel and tire, really, mounted on an oak stump with a pair of pipe flanges and a short nipple, and spun up to speed with a tire iron stuck through the holes in the hub, but Mr. Bergman uses it with considerable skill.
