Tools to Smooth and Perfect Your Ceramic Projects

After hours of throwing clay, trimming, carving and more, having a glaze drip or rough bottom on your clay project is every pottery artist’s worst nightmare. 

Our team didn’t want artists to suffer from that final outcome any longer. We designed our DiamondCore® sanding pads and abrasive strips along with our grinding discs and rotary tools to allow you to save your ceramic work and polish your pieces to perfection. 

Diamond Sanding Pads and Abrasive Strips

Pottery sanding tools can help you to smooth out any imperfections and rough edges on your ceramic projects with ease. Our sanding pads and strips can be used wet or dry and are strong enough to work on high-fired clay, glaze, bisque, tile, stone and glass.

Simply choose the right size and grit for the specific ceramic you typically create, and let the diamonds do the work! The larger you move up in grit number, the more finely polished you can make your piece. Get rid of the ordinary sandpaper that tires your hands and that needs to be replaced every few uses. DiamondCore® sanding pads and strips long outlast regular sandpaper and will change the way you smooth your pottery projects.

Always remember to use the proper safety precautions while sanding pottery. To minimize clay dust, we recommend wetting the sanding tool or the surface of your piece, and wearing eye protection and a mask. You can learn more tips for sanding pottery safely in our blog.
