WIRE CUTTERS

Wire cutters are an extremely versatile tool in ceramics. These cutters have an important place in both wheel-throwing and handbuilding. It is amazing to think of the number of ways in which wire cutters can be used! They are commonly employed in slicing off chunks of clay from larger blocks, and for cutting and removing pots from the pottery wheel head. Wire tools are also used in surface decoration and clean up and finishing techniques, such as beveling slabs and for evening out the rims of pots.

 

Traditional wire cutters are available in various lengths and gauges - thicker wires are often more durable, less likely to bend and last a long time. Thinner wires give a more pristine cut, but are a little more prone to breakage over time. Traditional wire tools now also come with a variety of handle types, including wooden, plastic and rubber. Rubber ones with grip are a new advancement, and they allow you to securely hold onto the tool without slippage - try the Mudcutter by Mudtools. Harps and Yumi tools are wire cutters that have a taut wire pulled around a horseshoe-shaped handle. These traditional tools allow for easy use and maneuvering when cutting clay. Straight wires are useful in faceting, while newer coiled “wiggle” wires are used to create different surface effects. Coiled wires can also be used to cut off pots from the wheel, and leave an interesting texture on the underside of the ware.

 

At The Ceramic Shop, we carry a large supply of wire cutters. Please feel free to call us with any questions you may have.
