Curves are tricky to throw so I've designed three ribs to help you form consistent curves quickly. Throwing faster is a key to efficient making. Throwing consistent forms means not only do your pots look harmonious and uniform, you have to take less individual pictures of every pot, and it helps you learn muscle memory and continue to improve throwing skills, plus they are easier to fit into a kiln (especially bisque firing where they can sit rim to rim). 

Throwing faster means I don't have to charge such a premium on my time and can make affordable pottery and make a living from it too! 

The set comes with three curves, based on my favourite mugs I've thrown in the past. 

All ribs are 7m tall (2.7 inches). These are for making MINI shapes. Some ideas could be shot classes, espresso cups, mini vases, or Christmas ornaments like bells.

Rib A (The Egg One): is a gently bellied form, that closes inwards at the top making a lovely huggable egg shape. 

Rib B (The Wine One): This one is a curved bottom and straight side. Probably the easiest of the three to start with. 

Rib C (The Flared One/The Teacup One): this is based on a traditional teacup shape, with a strong curve that flares out at the top.

 

I recommend starting each form with a straight sided cylinder, your walls should be thicker than you'd like the finished piece to be as they will think as you stretch them into the curves. 

Ribs are a minty blue, for a little colour in your studio, and made from a mixture of organic matter and bioplastic PLA, which is a type of plastic made from renewable organic compounds (like corn) rather than fossil fuels (oil). Plus for every 25 sets of ribs sold, a tree is planted by the PLA manufacturer. 

SHIPPING IS INCLUDED and includes tracked worldwide postage.

I will ship worldwide, using Royal Mail Standard International Shipping+tracking, this usually takes 5-7 days to arrive after dispatch. If you have any issues with your country shipping let me know and I'll amend. You are responsible for any customs fees once the rib arrives in your country.
