Hand Built Pottery Patterns

The below templates have been redone with a grid background in an attempt to reduce the toner/ink used by printing. Sizes that can fit on a single page are positioned so that assembly is not required. Unnecessary interior patterns have been removed from PDF files. These changes were made based on feedback received by visitors to this site. Assembly instructions are available for the below hand building pottery templates.
