For over 20 years now, New Jersey-based Princeton Brush Co. has provided innovative quality to the art world. They do one thing, and they do it well – and that’s brushes. Here at The Ceramic Shop, we love their line of Catalyst Tools, which were developed with intense paint applications in mind., These silicon tools are actually wonderful for a variety of applications in the clay studio, though, and because they were developed by artists, they can easily serve multiple functions in your studio. Take the Catalyst mini-blade series, for example – our glaze technician, Rachel, swears by these for mixing up tiny tests with minimal mess. They are also great for creating wild patterns in slip applied over clay, though, so their functions really are endless! From a variety of hand-held contour ribs to longer implements that can be used as throwing sticks, let Princeton Brush Co. and their Catalyst Tools add a pop of cool color and unbelievable function to your studio set-up.
