« Pottery HD got me thinking… | Main | Calling all iPad animators »

Fire up the kiln, pottery arrives for the iPad. Yes, we said pottery

Let's create! Pottery HD from Infinite Dreams is a pottery app for the iPad. Now iPad owners can recreate the famous Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore Ghost movie moment, but without all that mess and the cheesy soundtrack.

We fired up Pottery HD this morning and we think it's pretty special. It's a totally different experience from anything we have encountered on the iPad so far. It's not a game, but it does have game elements. It's not a painting app, but you will need some artistic ability in order to attain the more pleasing designs. It's not a stress relief app, but you will find it soothing. One word of caution, don't be put off by your very first clay shaping experience, it does take some practice. We found that pinching and pulling with two or more fingers on either side of the clay to be the most effective method. Also, portrait mode is more satisfying than landscape.

Perhaps the highest accolade we can give Pottery HD is that after having played it we feel inspired to purchase some clay and paints to see if we can bring any of our Pottery HD creations into existence.

Apps like Pottery HD surely go a long way to dispelling the often repeated and totally ridiculous adage that the iPad is for content consumption and not creation.

If you are planning on purchasing Let's create! Pottery HD, you will need this Righteous Brothers tune for the full experience.

Here's our first creation. No laughing please!

The app was my favorite until the last update nukes it!
All it does now is freeze up.
Any idea when it will work again?

Hi Jim,

It worked fine for us, but only after a full restart of the iPad.

I play this game for 2 month, nearly every day. It is fascinating. There is a group of artists in competition to have the most original pot. This is very funny. It is a must have for tne Ipad.

I simply love this app. I only wish they had a few more colors added. Of all the apps I have purchased, I enjoy this one the most. My grandsons use it on their ipods as well.

Hi Nell - more colours would be nice, the iPad Creative kids love this app too, they have 'sold' lots of their work! ^_^

I love this game but unfortunately it never loads successfully on my i pad and on my i phone I have to wait for my hubby to come back home so that I can play on his i pad .It would be kind of you if you could suggest what I have to do to resolve this problem .Thank you.

I would like to know how you purchase more patterns and colors. What do you do with the coins when you have purchased everything?

I love the game but it crashes every time I make a second piece of pottery.
