Mudwires are ergonomically designed to be a pleasure to use. The handle is made with a durable polymer and is shaped to give you a comfortable grip without having to wrap the wire around your fingers.
The high-grade stainless steel braided cable of the standard green mudwire is more resistant to kinking than common cable or solid wire and stronger than nylon fishing line. This cut-off wire is suited for a standard 13 inch wheel-head and makes a clean cut. You’ll use it every day. Wire length is approximately 15".
The Heavy Black Mudwire is the big brother of the Standard Green Mudwire general-use wire. This Mudwire is made with a thicker high-grade stainless steel braided cable, making it stronger & more resistant to kinking. The heavy gauge wire is built to take on the big jobs and groggy clay. Wire length is approximately 17".
The Curly Red Mudwire is more than just a cut-off tool. As you pull it through the clay, the coiled wire leaves a beautiful pattern. Use it for faceting and you get a surface that looks beautiful on wood-fired or salt-fired pots and underglazes that break (like celadon or temeku).
