  • A flat lay of tools, thrown pots and palette boards. Potters seem to accumulate endless tools, as there are so many stages to producing pottery, there’s designing, throwing, turning, glazing and decorating and firing and each require a different set of tools. Throwing and turning tools get worn away slowly, even a slight bit of bite to your clay, a touch of grog, is enough to wear down metal and wood and eventually they’ve got to be replaced, it’s likely this reason that I don’t invest too heavily on tools for these two processes and if I can make one myself that does the job well then I certainly will.

When visiting other potters studios one of the most fascinating things I like to do is to look at their tools, beyond even their pots, is what they use to make them. I’ve seen some ingenious solutions over the past few years and it really does change tremendously from maker to maker, especially when travelling abroad. The toolsets used in potteries in the United Kingdom verses what I saw in Japan differ greatly, with entirely different methods being used for measuring thrown vessels, trimming and glazing. One of my favourite being the ladles used for glazing in Japan, beyond their obvious use, ladles are used to measure raw materials out, I saw glaze recipes noted as ‘3 ladles one material, 2 of another and 1 of another’ instead of the percentages we normally go by, they were also used to test viscosity, decorate, pour and mix.

A lot stays the same from studio to studio but what a potter uses to create their pots, their tools, the clay and the glazes change so much. It’s so individual to that maker and it gives this craft such a lot of depth.
