Abstract

This paper introduces a novel technique to create digital potteries using certain simple-yet-efficient techniques of digital geometry. Given a , the proposed wheel-throwing procedure works with a few primitive integer computations only, wherein lies its strength and novelty. The created digital surface is when the generatrix is an irreducible digital curve segment, which ensures its successful rendition with a realistic finish, whatsoever may be the zoom factor. Thick-walled potteries can also be created successfully and efficiently using non-monotone digital generatrices to have the final product ultimately resembling a real-life pottery.
