£7.00Stock Available:  14

The essential Pottery Sponge from DiamondCore Tools is an accessory no studio should be without. Available in three varieties of finishes — tough, medium, and fine — these sponges feel like a soft and comfortable extension of your hand.

  • Tough sponge (black) is best for shaping while wheel-throwing. Returns to form after compression and maintains firm support.
  • Medium sponge (purple) is a good compromise for both throwing and finishing. Squishes slightly after compression, conforms to shapes. Smooth finish.
  • Fine sponge (light blue) is best for final touch-ups or delicate pieces. Squishes most after compression, flexible, extremely smooth finish.
