In Jingdezhen, the craft of throwing is one of speed and consistency.

Pieces are thrown fairly thickly, allowing for faster drying, less warpage, and more leeway for the trimmer to ensure that each piece is consistent in size and shape.

Throwers earn good wages and are in fairly high demand, although with the economic boom in recent years it has become difficult to find young apprentices willing to do such hard work.
