Great Divider explained


The Great Divider 2 is a unique piece of work to help potters create great decorations

The Great Divider is a decoration tool to get patterns and geometries with high accuracy and precision on to your pottery. With a vertical ruler, a 360 degree protractor ring, a rotating set of pointers that work with the polygons of the TC Dividing Pattern, you get all the support you can get to create the most wonderful geometries.

Example 1: Place markings on regular angular intervals. Use the polygons of the TC Dividing Pattern as reference. With the five polygons you can make eight evenly spaced divisions of 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9.

Example 2: Place markings or lines on exact distances from the bottom plane

Example 5: Create any angular geometry, evenly spaced or not, using the Protractor ring with 360 degree scale.

How does the Doubling scale work:

The Doubling scale is a series of pointers with numbers on the foot of the Great Divider, these are the double values of the numbers of the polygons on the disc. When you point pointer 18 for instance to a corner of the 9-polygon on the disc, the scriber stands exactly on half the distance to the next corner. So now you can divide a circle in 18 equal pieces.

Example 3: Use the ruler to guide your pencil or scriber, with or without the fix-plug

Example 4: Use the doubling-scale on the foot to increase accuracy and number of divisions you can make with the TC Dividing Pattern. With doubling scale you can make thirteen evenly spaced divisions of 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14, 16 or 18, at any height.
