Tools and Equipment

Building a home studio or looking for a gift for a potter in your life? Want to support me and the blog by shopping on Amazon? Here’s a list of tools in my studio that I recommend (and can’t live without)! Click any of the links and start shopping away, it won’t cost you anything extra – and I’ll get a small commission.

Skutt KM818

In my studio I’ve got a big boy Skutt KM1227 and this smaller KM818. Both run on 240v electrical outlets. The big kiln required a beefier breaker circuit (80 amp) and is hardwired in (that took some doing!) – but the smaller kiln shares the same plugin that my dryer uses. Pretty convenient to use all the same wiring in the house – even if it does mean having to unplug the dryer and plug the kiln in whenever I need it. I’ve used Skutts for decades and they’ve been in pretty much every studio I’ve worked in. There’s definitely a right size for every application, and I’ve found that the 818 is a perfect size for quickly turning over work for upcoming deadlines.
