Collection: TOOLS

Quality Tools Inspire Quality Art

These are NOT your ordinary, mass produced pottery tools.  These sleek ribs and trim knives are shaped and smoothed to limit dragging and gouging.  They seem intuitive as they transfer your vision to your clay.  

Made from quality woods, they are works of art in themselves, created to inspire you to greatness and to get your mind in the maker's moment.

Perfect for gift-giving, celebrating milestones or simply enjoying that soul connection to beauty.  From jewelry-sized fobs to giant ribs.  Quality tools encourage quality art.  

NEW: Check out the stamps, paddles and custom chop marks I can make.  If  you have a design for any tool in mind, please contact me.  For gift-giving, awards or just extra motivation, I can engrave tools with logos, images and sentiments from printer-ready files.*

*To make custom tools I require a to-scale outline drawing of the tool shape with dimensions marked.  To do custom routing or engraving I require printer-ready files in .jpg, .pgn, .pdf or .svg format.  I also need to know what size the finished design(s) should be.
