 Peter Pugger Pugmills for clay

The first Peter Pugger was born in 1973 in sunny San Luis Obispo, California. It was a collaboration of a then-little-known architect/potter named Gordon Motta and an even lesser-known engineer named Randy Wood. Gordon wanted a pugmill; Randy had ideas. After many long nights of welding, cutting, banging, bending, consulting, and a little swearing, a very strange pugmill emerged, made mostly of recycled parts from abandoned garlic factory processing equipment. This long-nosed monstrosity was aptly named "Peter Pugger" by a friend with an active imagination. At that point no one imagined Peter Pugger would ever begin manufacturing. "If I had it to do over, I'm not sure I'd call it Peter Pugger", says Randy, "but it sure is a name people don't forget." 

 

Today, Peter Pugger has become a reliable name in clay pugging, de-airing, and reconditioning. The workhorses will make pugging your clay a breeze; for true studio freedom, consider purchasing a Peter Pugger VPM model, which means vacuum-mixing-pugging. These machines truly CAN do it all, making the most of your time, materials, and studio space.
