Polymer Rib - Shape 3 / Red / Very Soft (Mudtools)Mudtools
Polymer Rib Shape 3 is 5" wide and gives a good sweep across the clay. This is a good rib if you throw larger objects. Michael Sherrill, the founder of Mudtools, uses the Green Medium or Blue Firm because they are stiffer and bite into the clay.
All of our polymer ribs are made of unique flexible materials that are resistant to wear and the formation of burrs. We've found that with general use these ribs become burnished over time. Each polymer rib shape is available in variations of flexibility.
Whether you are throwing clay on the wheel, hand building or sculpting, the pottery rib is a classic and essential tool. It acts as an extension of the potter's hand to create shapes and surfaces that fingers alone cannot achieve.
We believe our tools should not only function well, but should be pleasant to look at and a joy to use. Whatever you want to make, we've got you covered.
