What tools do you need for pottery ?

For all potters, an essential set of tools will include the basics like a needle tool, metal or wood potter’s rib, a wire cutting tool, and a couple of trimming loops and a sponge. These are the basics that a beginner in pottery will find helpful, whether you are hand building, sculpting, or wheel throwing
