The Steve Tool is a texture application tool. It is a re-invention of the wheel designed specifically for clay. It doesn't clog easy so you get lots of raw texture! Use the tool to apply texture to thrown or hand built work.
No more stealing toys from the kitchen!
The same Steve Tool can be configured into many variant designs by rearranging the disks over the shaft in assorted patterns.
Loosen the nuts, adjust the plastic disks into alternate locations & retighten the nuts. It's just a wheel, so let it spin.
To use The Steve Tool, throw a cylinder. Scrape the side clean with a rib. Roll the texture wheels around the spinning cylinder & move slowly up the cylinder (or fast, your choice).
After texture is applied, form the shape from only the inside of the cylinder. You'll see how the texture becomes "part of the pottery" & not simply "applied texture" which is how texture looks when applied to a finished pot.
