If I was hard pressed to only have 8 pottery tools to use there are the ones I would pick. I have them segregated into two categories. Tools for throwing on the potter's wheel, and tools for carving. Sure I have a few other ones for example a bigger rib for making platters or a clothes pin for making lids...but these are my constant I use every day in the studio tools.
All the tools above are clickable links to the tools for sale at ClayKing.com. I highly recommend buying supplies from them. They work really hard to have competitive prices, and have a lot of supplies available from one location.

I have a home/studio!
After many months of looking...we finally have a home to call our own in Milwaukee, WI. It's going to take a few more months to water proof my new basement studio, and to install tile flooring.
So, I am making the best of it, and turning my creative energy over to wood working. Finally using these maple boards and black walnut slab that were wedding gifts. I'm looking forward to sharing before and after photos.
Kiln Unload = Christmas Presents
Pulling blue pots from the wood kiln still makes me giggle...yes I'm that person. Take a close look at that electric blue on the berry bowl I'm holding. It's amazing how different a glaze looks depending on the clay body. My onion jar on the left is a blue glaze on a white stoneware versus the berry bowl in the middle has the same blue glaze on porcelain.
The last image is of Amy holding up some of her mini plates with no glaze on them at all.
