Here at The Ceramic Shop, we love the tools that are designed and made by master potter Bill Van Gilder! For over 30 years now, Bill has been constantly designing and refining his various lines of ribs, knives, wire, and other throwing implements. You can watch Bill van Gilder demonstrate various techniques, often using his own tools, on the DIY network. He has demonstrated at NCECA in the past, as well. With van Gilder tools, you can really take your work to that polished next level.
