Mod Info:

Compatible with patch (02/11/2021) No update required.

Adds a new crafting station complete with a 10 level skill, several custom buffs and a new craftable – pottery.

[13/10/2021] Updated Chinese Translation by AJia + Added 10 recolors of the Pottery Station
[17/09/2021] I added an extra optional file if you want your Sim to like/dislike Pottery
It's completely optional, you don't need it to use the Pottery Wheel, but I thought some people might enjoy it. In CAS it can be found under Hobbies & Skills category.

1. Pottery Wheel – Craft Pottery

Once pressed on it, you will see a picker window from where you can choose the craftable you want to create

At level 1, are available 6 ceramic design plates for crafting, and as the Skill progresses, more pottery recipes are unlocked.

Since pottery is a common relaxing practice, I added extra functionality, your Sim can use the pottery wheel while they are tense/uncomfortable/sad. The crafting process will also decrease their negative mood.

Only the teapots are visible in the regular buy menu, under appliances, but they cost 1000$ if you want to buy them.

All craftables are low poly,LOD 0: under 1K.

*Can be crafted
*Can be sold from the inventory

Interactions with craftables

80% of the potteries give off an emotional aura

View the object

The Sim will admire the handcraft and get special moodlets

Sell to Pottery Museum

This interaction will allow your Sim to sell their products at a double price (available after skill level 5)

Sell to Private Collector

Similar to the upper, available after level 7

Some of the craftables are functional

On level 10 of the pottery skill, your Sim can create teapots and perfume bottles) they can be used, and the teapots work off-the-grid.

With level 6 onward, your Sim will create different types of big vases, amphoras, kylix, etc. They all can be used to collect water.


There are at least 20 different buffs, that your Sim can receive from different interactions, including, after finishing crafting, viewing the craftables, and mentoring.

What Is The Price Structure

The cost to make the ceramic is based on a small fee – to cover hidden costs. (It's around 0.5 % of the retail price)

Selling Price

Adjusted so that the sim can profit in all cases, even when the quality is poor.
A higher price can be obtained by selling via the interaction ‘Sell to Pottery Museum’ and “Sell to Private Collector”.


The only known issue is that you cannot queue potteries. You have to craft potteries one by one.
