The new Small Pottery Wheel monthly update: June

The new Small Pottery Wheel monthly update: June

Hey everyone,

 

This month has flown by, and we’ve been hard at work behind the scenes. While we haven’t started manufacturing just yet, we’re making sure everything is perfect. We encountered some issues with two components, which led us to restart the sampling process. This is quite a challenge since every single part is custom-made for us. Our commitment to delivering a unique product means we can’t just pick components off the shelf, but the result will be well worth it.

We expect the new samples to arrive in the next three weeks. If they pass our rigorous tests, we can finally move forward with production. Meanwhile, we are securing financing for the molds and wheels. Your support of £10 is helping us gauge production numbers and commitment – it’s a small but crucial step towards our goal.

For those who’ve been with us since February, I understand the wait has been frustrating. Trust me, I’m just as eager as you are to get things moving. Despite the challenges, we’re fully committed to delivering your small pottery wheel. The road has been tougher than anticipated, but we are two dedicated people who are working extremely hard to get these wheels out into the world.

As we wait for these final steps, I can’t give a precise delivery date just yet. I want to avoid moving the goalpost if there are further delays. Once production is underway, I’ll provide a more accurate timeline.

If you’re tired of waiting, you can use your pre-order as a gift card in our store for some beautiful Garrity Tools, a colorful Soola bag, or other pottery accessories. Please note that using your gift card means you might not receive a pottery wheel in the first batch, as we will be adjusting our production numbers. 

To address the delay, we’re also restarting production of the classic model and aim to arrange a drop as soon as possible without compromising the new model’s progress. We expect to release another batch by the end of July, provided the components pass QA. 

Lastly, for those interested in wheels for pottery studios or schools, please let us know if you have any specific certification requirements beyond the usual FCC, CE, UKCA, and EMC standards. Feel free to drop us a message at support@smallceramics.com

Thank you for your patience and continued support. We’re excited to bring you an amazing product as soon we physically can.

Appreciate the update and options! I just discovered your product on social media and I’m excited to get one for my mother, a longtime ceramicist who had to give up her hobby a number of years ago. She will be thrilled to pick it back up again!
