Turning is to move around on an axis, such as turning your head or turning a wheel. A ceramic wheel can be rotated by hand, foot or electricity. A hand wheel when turned is used for banding and it allows you to work on all sides of the object. With foot or electric wheels, the turning is continuous and allows you to form round objects in clay, like bowls, plates and pots.
