Also known as a dot maker.

Fill with liquid colored clay and dot away.



Ceramisits are crafty folk, as you may have already guessed. But what you might not have fathomed is what tools they get from where to make their art. For instance the rectal syringe above is what is used to “trail slip” all the highly decorated Old English folk pottery is done in this manner. Or a credit card cut in a certain curve can be used on the wheel to form the sides of a pot such as contemperary pottery Greg Payce. What is your favorite odd made or found tool?
