AMACO was fortunate to buy the most popular line of pottery wheels and equipment, brent®, in 1978 from pottery innovator Robert Brent, who founded his company over 40 years ago on “quality and performance, not on the bottom line.”

AMACO/brent offers up to a 10-Year warranty, (click here to learn more) – it’s our way of standing behind the performance, strength and reliability of brent® Wheels. Durability and strength is never a question, just ask Don Reitz!

“I’ve used a brent® Wheel for 39 years with virtually no maintenance. I own 7 brent® Wheels, and have thrown many tons of clay. I require a wheel that is sturdy and will not wobble yet is portable enough to move around the studio. I often stand on the wheel tabletop to work on very large forms,” says Don Reitz, Professional Potter, well known for salt glazes & large forms, with artwork in the collections of the Smithsonian Institution, Chicago Art Institute, American Museum of Ceramic Art, and many more. Don throws only on a brent®.

The Classic Controller
brent® made its reputation as the Harley Davidson of potters wheels by providing optimal torque at all speeds, with a reversing switch that has a safety/neutral position for smooth transitions…  ‘neutral’ also allows the wheel head to be used as a banding wheel.

Potters will enjoy the old-reliable toggle switches for on/off and forward/reverse commands, as well as, protruding indicator lights that make it convenient when operating from behind the wheel.
