If you are a seasoned potter, you are aware of the multitude of wooden rib tools available. If you are a newbie, you are likely overwhelmed by them! So what makes the Dirty Girls Bean Throwing Rib, a seemingly typical wooden rib, unique?
As with most Dirty Girls products, this tool has multiple features, including distinct ergonomic qualities. The tool’s unique bean-shape provides multiple angles which are useful in creating novel shapes and curves while throwing. The rib’s slightly beveled edge eliminates potential friction between the wood and the clay, which is a common issue in maintaining shape and form while throwing. This edge also creates a smooth and compressed surface, additional strength and stability to the pot. Additionally, the strategically offset hole in the rib provides for dexterity in movement as well as a steady grip while throwing.
