This is my favorite general use Paddle shape. We make ours out of reclaimed local hardwood. We rescue this beautiful hardwood from dead trees to make a paddle that will give you a lifetime of use. This little guy works hard, whether you are using it to close two seams together, to put a pleat in a tea bowl or to deform a small pot.
Why do we include a sleeve for the Paddle? The Paddle will do the job with or without a cover, but if you work in wet sticky clay then you know how a paddle wants to cling to the surface. A sleeve will let the paddle release quickly when you slap the clay. Get one and start slapping your clay today!
