The Steve Tool


The Steve Tool is a texture application tool. One tool can be configured in many ways for different texture results. Textured surfaces can add another layer of interest to your thrown and slab forms.


The Steve Tool is a texture application tool. It is a re-invention of the wheel designed specifically for clay. It doesn’t clog easily so you get lots of raw texture! Use the tool to apply texture to thrown or hand-built work. The Steve Tool texture roller can be configured into many variant designs by rearranging the disks over the shaft in assorted patterns. Loosen the nuts, adjust the disks into alternate locations & retighten the nuts. It’s just a wheel, so let it spin.

To use The Steve Tool throw a straight cylinder, texture it with The Steve tool, then stretch the clay from the inside. This technique gives you a textured surface similar to the sodium silicate technique without needing the silicate or blowtorch.
