A while back, we had a contest to find clever D.I.Y. pottery tools. Lots of folks sent videos showing off the clever homemade tools they created to make their jobs in the pottery studio easier. There was only one winner, but there were lots of great ideas that we’d still like to share with you.
So today, we are presenting one of those honorable mentions. In this bonus Monday video, Lowell Baker shares a simple but brilliant tool for dry footing your pottery. Enjoy, and get ready to say, “now why didn’t I think of that?” – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
