Item #: MKMSP1
This beautifully crafted, small, textured wooden paddle made by MKM is double-sided, with different designs on each face. While this tool is great for paddling thrown pots and creating interesting surface effects, consider using this paddle for handbuilding as well. With this paddle you can create textured coils, handles, slabs, etc. You can simply place the paddle on a flat surface and lay a slab of clay on top of it. Then, with a rolling pin (or your hand), gently roll over the slab, lightly pressing the clay into the paddle. The paddle is designed for easy release of the clay, which now has a gorgeous textured pattern on it! Sometimes it is useful to use two paddles and press the clay in between so that both sides of the slab are patterened.
Convenient hole in the handle allows you to hang your paddle for easy storage.
Please see image for texture patterns. Additional sizes and patterns are available for purchase.
