This is the SAVIAC wheel, designed by David Ballantyne (1913-1990) of Poole Pottery in Dorset,England. It is a collaboration between a potter and an engineer.
My version is not, I think one of the geared models, but with its cast iron flywheel it has good momentum.
Search After Values In An age of Crisis.
I would like to know more about why he named them thus, but it is suitable for the "interesting" times we live in.
No, that wheel wasn't cleaned especially for the photos! Unlike some people, I prefer to work clean, throw with slip and put any slop clay separate ready to be recycled.
No point in making work and wasting time!
