I just came across this great contest that Ceramics Monthly is holding. As a ceramic artist myself, I know that often the best clay tools are the ones you make or repurpose yourself, specifically for the job at hand. Everything from a particularly curved sponge-on-a-stick, to an extruder die, to a creative reclaiming process is eligible for the prize of a $500 Gift Card to use on Euclids.com!
The deadline to submit is coming up ? July 16th! Check out the website for details about how to enter, its a video contest so go find a tripod and get started!
