Mudtools Curly Red Mudwire £7.28
When Michael Sherrill was just a wee pup of a potter he watched in awe as someone used the spring from a ball point pen as a pottery tool. Fast forward to Michael designing tools for potters and you have the Curly Red Mudwire. It’s more than just a cut-off tool – when you pull it through the clay it leaves a beautiful pattern. Use it for faceting and you get a surface that looks beautiful on wood-fired or salt-fired pots and under glazes that break (like celadon or tenmoku). The handle is made with a durable polymer and is shaped to give you a good grip without having to wrap the wire around your fingers. The stainless steel curly wire comes to you compressed and you pull it out to get the curl that suits you.
Please note imag shows a pink product when it is actually RED.

The wire is great. So much better than other wires. It's strong and when pulled out as far as you like, it stays there. It doesn't get twisted so therefore doesn't fray. It doesn't hurt your hands and doesn't break at the handles. The handles are really ergonomic and easy to grip when your hands are wet. It is such an investment. After using this you will wonder why all pottery wires are not made this way.

Can one get spare wires for this?
Nina from United Kingdom asks
I am not sure I understand the properties of the wire...are you saying that it has memory and therefore will return to its original shape or that, once stretched, that is how it remains until stretched again?
