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.
All of our Mudtools polymer pottery ribs are made of a unique flexible material that will not develop burrs or cracks under normal use. We’ve found that over time the rib becomes even more polished. Each polymer shape is available in a variety of hardness. See Product Description Tab below for more information.
Whether you are throwing clay on the wheel, hand building or sculpting, the pottery rib is a classic and essential tool. Because it acts as an extension of the potter’s own hand, we believe it should function well and be a joy to use. With that in mind, we have 9 different polymer ribs and 10 stainless steel ribs for you to choose from. Whatever you want to make , we’ve got you covered.
