Sherrill Mud Tools
Mud Tool Shaver
The Sherrill Shaver is very useful for removing excess clay from the feet of leather hard hand built or oblong forms. It is also the perfect tool for shaving mitered edges for assembling slabs.
Mudtool Bowl Rib
Small Bowl Ribs are designed to give as many radius sweeps on the clay as possible. They are smaller in the front and bigger in the back and are a workhorse of a rib, especially if you are throwing big pots.
Mudtool Rib Shape 0
Shape 0 Polymer Ribs are our smallest Polymer Ribs and one of our best sellers. The traditional kidney-shape of these potters ribs is the most universally recognized clay tool. These little ribs can get into tight places and are good for detail work. The Red Very Soft is excellent for finishing rims.
Mudtool Rib Shape 1
These traditional kidney-shaped ribs are the most universally recognized pottery tool. They fit well in the hand and are useful for sculpting, hand building and throwing clay.
Mudtool Rib Shape 2
The Shape 2 Polymer Ribs are the firstborn in the Mudtools family. They are a remake of Michael Sherrill’s favorite old rib and a workhorse for throwing, smoothing and compressing.
Mudtool Rib Shape 3
Shape 3 Polymer Ribs are 5 inches long and they give a good sweep across the clay. These are good ribs if you throw larger objects. Michael Sherrill uses the Green Medium or Blue Firm because they are stiffer and bite into the clay.
Mudtool Rib Shape 4
Sometimes you need to make a point! The corner point on the Shape 4 Polymer Ribs gives a beautiful line on the clay; you also get two flat surfaces and three radiuses.
Mudtool Rib Shape 5
The Shape 5 Polymer Ribs have much in common with our Shape 1 Polymer Ribs, only on a bigger scale. They offer more surface coverage, making them great for smoothing a slab of clay.
Mudtool Sponge – Blue
The Mudsponge Blue Workhorse is a great all-purpose pop-up sponge made of an open cell material that is very absorbent. We’ve shaped it like a potters rib to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand. Dyed with a natural pigment, the color will fade with use.
Mudtool Sponge – Orange
The Mudsponge Orange Most Absorbent pop up sponge is the perfect throwing sponge. More absorbent than the Mudsponge White Finishing and the Mudsponge Blue Workhorse.
Mudtool Sponge – White
The Mudsponge White Finishing is pop up sponge made with a tight-cell material and is less absorbent than the Mudsponge Blue Workhorse. It is excellent for finishing work, final detail and clean-up of surfaces and won’t pull out grog or other materials in the clay body. Think of it like a chamois sponge.
