Hand-crafted pottery tools

 

Guess what potters do when they’re not potting?

Make pottery tools! This lovely little piece was made by our Art House tutor Mick Randle. He not only throws large pots, big and small but also has a forge at home to handcraft the blade for making tools to turn the foots of pots. It is super sharp and you may notice the unique design on the side of the blade. his trademark. He also turned the handle from two different types of wood. I have yet to find out what they are.

It’s great to have friends in the right places, because I am the proud owner of this unique tool.
