Steel Bowl "Boomer" Rib

Nope, sorry, the Steel Boomer is not a superhero -- but you might think it is when you're working the inside surfaces of bowls! A variety of smooth curves make this rib very flexible for working on shallow or deep bowls

Standard Mud Ribs

Sherrill Mud Tools, invented by Michael Sherrill of North Carolina, are made from a material known in the industry as "the stainless steel of plastics" because of its wearing qualities. Unlike rubber, this material will not develop burrs. These ribs actually burnish themselves as you use them. The different stiffnesses and shapes allow you to find one that fits your working style. Use the grid below to determine which item number to order, and click to add them to your cart.

All standard Mud Ribs are $7.00 each.

Large Mud Ribs

Boomerang Ribs: The Boomerib

Mike Sherrill officially calls it a "small bowl rib," but we like "boomerang rib" better... and we've nicknamed it the Boomerib. No matter what you call it, this is a great rib for working the inside surfaces of small to medium sized bowls. You can use different parts of the curve for bowls of varying width and depth (2.75" h x 4.63" w)

The Big Boom

The same shape as the original first boomerang ribs but larger, great for when you're working on those really large projects. They're not just for bowls: try them for other large forms too. Only available in Firm (green) and Soft (Yellow) so far. 3.88" h x 6.38" w.

Platter Mud Ribs

The same "plastic Cadillac" material that has made Mud Ribs so popular, now in a large size with a gradual curve for plates and platters. The large PRL measures 11-1/4" long, and the smaller PRS measures 7-1/2".

The Bump

The Bump is made with a solid aluminum shaft that is bendable but not flexible. The sponge end is a very dense layered material that becomes like chamois when wet, and has a hard ball under that surface. The whole thing is designed to allow for great leverage to move clay in those tricky places that you can't reach with your hands.

Mud Sponges

Shaped like traditional kidney ribs, these synthetic sponges are the best, toughest and most consistent sponges available. The blue sponge has proven its toughness many times in our classroom studio. The new peach sponge has that same toughness but with a super-SMOOOOTH surface for working around lips and edges. You really have to feel for yourself just how smooth this sponge is.
