The Studio Pro Rim Finishing Rib is designed to work in conjunction with StudioPro Rim Templates. It's two sized elliptical profiles are used to create a nice tapered rim on edges which have been cut using a rim template and wire cutter. Because it is flexible, many edges can be achieved by bending or tilting the rib. The rounded sides also work as a standard forming rib.
StudioPro Rim Templates are designed to create various rim patterns on open forms such as plates and bowls. Simply center the template on the oversized rim of a freshly thrown pot. Using a Mudtools Carving Bow or similar wire cutting tool and the template as a guide, cut away the extra clay. Leave the cut edge, smooth it with a sponge or reform it with a Studio Pro Rim Finishing Rib. Available in salad plate, dinner plate and platter sizes. Great for making sets!
It’s a wire tool with a handle. It can easily cut a plug of clay coming out of a 4 inch pug mill or cut a spout on an angle before attaching it the pot; it’s like an extra hand if you’re cutting clay off an extruder. Made with stainless steel and a comfortable polymer handle. Can be used with a straight or curly wire. Replacement wires are available in either straight or curly designs. The Mudcutter is slightly larger than the Carving Bow, thus the wires are specific for each tool.
It’s well suited for hand building and is handy if you work with polymer clay. The straight wire makes a clean cut when you are faceting thrown objects and the curly wire gives a great texture.
