Tools of the Trade

I have an order for some porcelain plates and bowls. Today I had to clean up my act to get ready to throw that pristine white stuff. It makes me feel like a doctor getting ready for surgery. As I was cleaning, I chose the tools that I would most likely need to throw these pots. Out of the myriad of ribs, wooden knives, needle tools, and sponges that I own, in reality these are the ones I use most.
...and probably the only ones I really ever need. But I do like looking at my collection of "stuff", and I would find it hard to give them up.

  1. Good luck. With all the red clay thrown around here I wouldn't even attempt porcelain.A little extra iron in the stoneware, I don't worry too much about it.

  4. Of all the tools I own, my pottery tools are the nearest and dearest to my heart. I have them. Cleaned and packed away in an old wooden tool box my dad built. Good luck with that white stuff!
