Item #: BTRR3
The Rope Roller Tools by Bamboo Tools were inspired by the cord markings on pots from the Jamon period of neolithic Japan. These rollers provide a simple way to create repeating patterns of rich texture. Rope rollers can be used just like rolling pins. Simply press gently into the clay as you slowly roll along its surface. For best results, we recommend their use on soft slabs of clay or on the surfaces of wet pots.
This Spiral Pattern Rope Roller creates close knit woven patterns. Use this roller to achieve a basket weave-like effect. The entire tool measures 6" long and is available with either 3 mm or 5 mm thick rope. Please select your choice from the drop down menu above.
This, and all other Rope Rollers from Bamboo Tools, is made from durable bamboo. The use of bamboo in ceramics is ideal, as it is water-resistant. We at The Ceramic Shop love the use of bamboo because it is such a rapidly renewable and abundant natural resource, making it an environmentally friendly alternative to wood.
Rope marker with 3mm or 5mm rope.
