Pottery Tools You Need to Upgrade Your Studio
DiamondCore® Tools brings more than 25 years of experience to its line of products! With the mission to change the world of ceramics since 1996, we’ve created and manufactured innovative, high-quality, hand-crafted pottery tools that are essential for your craft. If you’re looking to start your pottery tools collection this year — or are wanting to add to it — we’ve created a list of our most popular tools and their benefits to help you upgrade your studio!
This clay extruder has an angled, stainless-steel blade that leaves clean edges and pulls through clay smoothly. The shape helps to create a handle shape that is concave in the middle, helping you to quickly slice clay, cut it to length and attach it! Our R4 Concave Handheld Clay Extruder was made for hand-builders and useful for throwers as well. With a blade that’s built to last, you’ll love this addition to your pottery tools collection!
If you’re looking to add to your pottery tools collection or to start a collection of your own, we think you would love our Signature Shapes Handheld Clay Extruder Set! This set features our most popular clay extruders to help you to create clean and beautiful feet and handles for your ceramic pieces. This set includes the R1 Trapezoid, R2 Triangle and R3 U Shape handheld clay extruders.
Pottery Carving Tools
This carving tool is a must-have for ceramic artists! With its pencil-point precision, you can quickly carve deep or shallow lines into your clay with little effort. With DiamondCore’s advanced blade technology, your blade will never dull and will help you to create crisp, clean lines every time!
If you’re looking to craft fine and intricate ceramic pieces this year, this is the pottery tools set for you! These fine-point tools are superior to other traditional wire tools in the way that they allow you to get cleaner lines, crisp edges and less drag while you work. These tools have blades that are sharp on both sides, allowing both right- and left-handed artists to use our tools to their fullest ability!
This pottery trimming tool is perfect for projects where you need a smooth and flat trim from curves to corner cuts. The wood handle also doubles as a sculpting tool! While you’re working on your clay pieces, you’ll be able to use the T8 tool to shave off thin rounded ribbons along with carving, shaving, sculpting and scrapping.
The T1 Half Dome Pottery Trimming Tool with Paddle Handle would be the next great addition to your pottery tool collection! It features a blade with a round side and straight corner to transition easily from curved round to corner cut carving. Our blades are stainless steel and never need sharpening, allowing you to keep creating for longer!
These diamond grit pads are 1.75” x 2.75” and can easily smooth off high-fired clay, glaze and bisqueware. It can also work on tile, stone or glass! With fewer strokes and less force required than traditional sandpaper, you’ll have far less fatigue and will have a tool that lasts longer.
Our flexible foam-backed pads with diamond grit are 2.5” x 2.5”. They are available in different grits, allowing you to rough, heavy clay or glaze and to polish your pieces. Fewer strokes and less force are required for you to accomplish your projects!
Our Diamond Grinding Disc features a 7000 hardness rating making it a higher hardness rating than silicon carbide abrasives rated at 2400 hardness. Depending on what you’re typically working on — heavy glaze or high-fired clay removal (60 grit), pot leveling (120 grit) or smoothing (240 grit) — we have the grinding disc you’re looking for! With all of our Diamond Grinding Discs, you’ll want to make sure that you’re adding water and letting the diamonds do the work.
Help us help you this year with a Diamond Grinding Disc that lasts longer and provides better results than silicon carbon abrasives! Like the 8” Diamond Grinding Disc on 12” Bat, this tool is available in three grits(60, 120, 240) depending on your application. It is faster than silicon carbide or sandpaper and gives you overall better results!
