The Most Popular Ceramic Tools to Add to Your Collection

Finding the right pottery tools for your ceramic projects doesn’t have to be difficult. At DiamondCore® Tools, we’ve designed each pottery tool to help you accomplish anything from traditional pottery-making tasks to more complicated and unique designs you haven’t yet tried. 

We’ve compiled a list of the most popular pottery tools to help you get the right tools for your projects. 

Pottery Carving Tools

Pottery sculpting and carving tools allow you to sculpt unique and intricate designs into your clay piece. You can use your carving tools to create crisp, clean lines or curves. 

We’ve designed multiple pottery sculpting tools to help you create your desired designs. Check out our carving tool blade selector to choose the correct tool for your next pottery project. 


No matter what carving tool you’re using, a sharp blade is essential. A sharp blade allows you to easily glide through the clay while reducing fatigue on your hands. Our patented stainless-steel blades never dull, so you get crisp, clean lines every time.  

Pottery Ribs

Whether you’re just starting your pottery-making journey or you’ve been creating ceramic pieces for years, ribs are an essential kind of tool to always have at your fingertips.. 

Both wood and metal ribs are some of the most versatile tools in the pottery studio. They allow you to provide support while building walls, throwing pieces on a pottery wheel or smoothing or scoring clay surfaces.



Pottery Trimming Tools

Pottery trimming tools are used for shaping and finishing clay pieces before glazing and firing. The best pottery trimming tools allow the clay to fall off in ribbons from your clay piece.  

At DiamondCore® Tools, our trimming tools are designed to provide minimal drag and resistance for a smooth, finished product. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes — including rounded, squared, cone-shaped blades, and more — so you can choose the perfect trimming tool for your clay project. 



Sanding Pads and Abrasive Strips

For a professional finish, sanding pads and abrasive strips are a must. A ceramic vessel that isn’t sanded can have a rough bottom, causing scratches when placed on surfaces. Without sanding, your ceramic work will be unfinished, decreasing the overall quality and value of your work. 

Our sanding pads and abrasive strips are specially designed to handle everything from sharp glaze drips to traditional polishing and smoothing. They’re perfect for helping you complete your ceramic project and polishing it to perfection.  



Grinding Discs 

Grinding discs allow you to quickly and easily remove glaze drips and smooth the bottom of ceramic vessels. 

If you feel your ceramic piece is ruined by drips and sharpness, grinding discs can help save your project. They’re also great for leveling the bottom of a dish so it sits perfectly flat.

At DiamondCore® Tools, our grinding products are available in various grits to perfectly polish your piece.
