Mudtools Sponges

The Blue Workhorse Mudsponge is a great all-purpose sponge made of an open cell material that is very absorbent. We’ve shaped it like a potters rib to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand. Dyed with a natural pigment, the color will fade with use.

The Orange Most Absorbent Mudsponge is the perfect throwing sponge. More absorbent than the Mudsponge White Finishing and the Mudsponge Blue Workhorse, it is the sponge Michael uses for throwing.

The White Finishing Mudsponge is made with a tight-cell material and is less absorbent than the Mudsponge Blue Workhorse. It is excellent for finishing work, final detail and clean-up of surfaces and won’t pull out grog or other materials in the clay body. Think of it like a chamois sponge.

The Bump (LG)

Stock #: LG BUMP
Price: $24.00

Have you ever made a hollow form and then tried to bump out the clay, only to find that you just can’t get your arm or your knuckle to the sweet spot? You need The Bump! The Bump is designed to extend the potter’s reach up to 18 inches when working in a hollow form: giving you the leverage you need to bump out the clay. The aluminum rod is stiff but can be altered to suit your individual need for throwing or sculpting clay. We can ship it to you straight and you customize it, or with a preset S curve. The sponge end is a dense absorbable material with a hard center.

Smaller than The Bump, The Baby Bump is designed to extend the potter’s or sculptor’s reach up to 13 inches and give you the leverage you need to move clay where your hand can’t. The aluminum rod is stiff but can be altered to suit your individual need for throwing or hand building clay. We ship it to you straight, you customize it. The sponge end is a dense absorbable material with a hard center.
