Use the best tools

We stock a small assortment of tools, some hard to find, some made especially for us, all have gone through our own informal hands-on tests. These three kits feature our proven favorites and are tailored to a variety of tasks. Each is offered at 25% off the cost of the tools sold separately.

Next Step Tool Kit
Contains: half moon trim tool, hand-made fat wooden Chelsea rib, hand-made throwing stick, flexible plastic or stainless steel rib, sponge on a stick, and ergo-thin or ergo-max cut off wire. For $37.00
Add the classic The Japanese Pottery Handbook for an extra $15.00. This handbook packs an incredible amount of information into a small package -- how to make your own tools, various styles of lids, bottles, teapots and much more.

Decorating Essentials Kit
Contains: medium slip trailer with one tip, three mop brushes, one goat hair painting brush, a rabbit hair pointed head brush set, three hake bushes, and gloves. For $29.00

Sumi-e for Clay Kit
Contains: the book Sumi-e: Just for You, an excellent introduction to the art of sumi-e. Also: three rabbit hair pointed brushes, set of three goat or wolf hair Chinese brushes, medium goat or wolf hair brush, large goat or wolf hair brush, and one 2 fl oz Amaco velvet underglaze (selected colors). We've found the brushes as useful for applying slips and oxides onto clay as they are for putting ink onto paper. For $39.00
