Paddle w/ Sleeve
This is my favorite general use Paddle shape. We make ours out of reclaimed locust wood. The North American Locust tree is sadly disappearing from our Southern Appalachian forests. We rescue this beautiful hardwood from dead trees to make a paddle that will give you a lifetime of use. This little guy works hard, whether you are using it to close two seams together, to put a pleat in a tea bowl or to deform a small pot.
Why do we offer a sleeve for the Paddle? The Paddle will do the job with or without a cover, but if you work in wet sticky clay then you know how a paddle wants to cling to the surface. A sleeve will let the paddle release quickly when you slap the clay. Get one and start slapping your clay today!
