Ribs are among the most versatile tools you will find in a pottery studio. They are essential implements for both wheelthrowing and handbuilding forms, as they provide smooth (and sometimes flexible) support to the forming walls of a vessel. Here at The Ceramic Shop, we carry a wide variety of ribs to meet your every need and preference. From traditional wooden ribs to flexible silicone ribs of varying hardness to the very popular MudTools rubber ribs, we have you covered when it comes to choosing the tool that works for you. We even carry ribs in fun, textured sets!
