Mudtools Rib #0 is the universally recognized traditional kidney-shaped pottery rib. Whether you are throwing clay on the wheel, hand-building or sculpting, the kidney-shaped pottery rib is a classic and essential tool.
Shape #0 is the smallest of the Mudtools Ribs and one of the most common. These little ribs can get into tight places and are good for detail work. The traditional kidney-shaped rib is offered in three sizes: #0 being the smallest, #1 the middle and #5 being the largest.
All Mudtools polymer pottery ribs are made of a unique flexible material that will not develop burrs or cracks under normal use. Each polymer shape is available in a variety of hardnesses: red (very soft), yellow (soft), green (medium) and blue (firm).
