They’re smacking it hard — and they want you to watch.
Sexy young ceramicists are trending on TikTok.
Posts with hashtags such as #PotteryGuy (4.9 million views), #OnlyPots — a saucy play on the name of NSFW site OnlyFans with 209 million views — and #PotteryBoy (262 million views) are making viewers thirsty and conjuring memories of Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore’s iconic pottery-wheel love scene in 1990’s “Ghost.”
“Pottery is such a mesmerizing thing to watch. It’s an inherently [sensual] art form,” Seattle-native clayboy Billy Keogh, 23, told The Post.
The 6-foot-2, muscle-bound print model, who lives in Los Angeles and also works in cybersecurity, has scored a staggering 1.3 million views on TikTok.
In his posts, he often coquettishly glances at his camera while sinking his fingers into the dampened putty, massaging it into a masterpiece.
“There’s a lot of [sexual innuendo] in pottery,” he added. “But for me, it’s a nice escape that allows me to create beautiful things.”
He first adopted ceramics as a hobby in 2018, as a high school senior. Then, in 2020, during the peak of the pandemic, his dad, Bill, also a ceramicist, transformed their family garage into a pottery shed, complete with a kiln.
In late 2022, Keogh began sharing sultry videos of himself tenderly molding cups, bowls, vases and plates on TikTok.
Worked-up women soon flooded his comments and DMs with risqué remarks, sometimes referencing the “Ghost” love scene.
Keogh has not watched the movie and said that some of the voyeurs’ messages have been “f – – king weird” and made him feel uncomfortable.
“I understand that sex sells, but some have rubbed me the wrong way once or twice,” he said, adding that his parents and three older sisters often tease him over some of the more inappropriate messages he receives.
And Keogh has no intention of stopping posting.
“Though there are some people who view my work as sexual,” he said, “there are others who see it and are reminded of someone they love or are inspired to create art themselves.”
He’s hardly the only Gen Z guy making the internet dizzy with his pottery wheel.
Dax Newman, 21, a clay-shaper from San Diego, California, has 5.8 million TikTok followers lusting after his mug-making skills.
Theo Hirschfield, 22, an art major at UC Santa Barbara’s College of Creative Studies, doesn’t even bother wearing the typical artist’s apron, putting his bare, toned arms, pecs and abs on full display.
The artist known as Pottery Boy racked up 49.3 million views for a video in which he spanks, spins and sculpts a lump into a plant pot.
The digital darling, who hails from Melbourne, Australia, opened his first pottery studio in April 2018. He told The Post he doesn’t mind getting half naked and crafting online if it means introducing more people to the world of pottery.
