Tools.


I noticed this guy Troy Bungart on etsy a while back was making some nice looking pottery tools, but none of them seemed to be what I was interested in so I had kind of forgotten about it.  Last week I noticed that Kyle Carpenter had snagged a couple and had them custom made and so I contacted Troy about making me a large rib and a paddle.  I've really wanted a longer straight rib for some taller pots, the one I had him make is 7" long.  I sent him a crude MS paint sketch of what I wanted and I had them in my hands in 6 days.  I'm a big fan of do-it-yourself but when there are people like this who do it far better than I can and for very reasonable prices, I would prefer to support them.  The quality is top notch.  I really look forward to using these tools and giving a couple of my ten year old Kempers an honorable retirement.
