Best Useful Gift Ideas For Potters and Ceramic Artists – These Are The Best Gifts For Potters For Any Occasion!

Great Last Minute or Holiday Gift Options!

Gift Idea # 1: A Claypron (Split Apron)

Any Ceramicist or Potter will appreciate tools that help keep them clean in the studio. In fact, it’s nice to have several of these around! This particular Claypron is split-leg style, making it the ideal design for artists who spend a lot of time working on the Potter’s Wheel. This practical gift is sure to be put to good use, and comes in several colors.

Gift Idea #2: A Quality Pair Of Studio Overalls

Some Potters (like me!) prefer a pair of studio overalls to an apron. My absolute fave? These Carhartt, relaxed fit duck bibs. I like the Men’s relaxed fit to ensure they go-on easily over other pants. These are practical for anyone who routinely works with clay and are made of a thick canvas fabric to stand the test of time. Bonus points: They keep you warmer in the studio!

Gift Idea # 3: Canvas Tool Tote by Dickies

This tote is the perfect option for Potters using a shared studio space, where they bring their own tools.

There are several styles of tool totes out there, but this one is my favorite for beginner to intermediate Potters. It has loops and pockets to keep tools orderly (and makes them easy to find). The middle keeps all the extras close while crafting.

Small (But Practical!) Gifts For Potters and Ceramic Artists

You can’t go wrong with these classic Pottery necessities. You don’t have to spend a lot to make your favorite Potter smile!

Useful Gifts For Potters: Mudtools Sponge / Shaping Set

Any Potter who uses the Potter’s Wheel will appreciate a set like this. It’s nicer than the typical sponge set they might buy for themselves, and will allow them to experiment with different textured sponges and shapes. Having new sponges is like a having a fresh box of crayons. With the unique shape and assorted textures, of this set they might discover a new favorite!

Useful Gifts For Potters: Diamond Sanding Blocks For Finishing

To keep the bottom of finished pieces smooth (so they doesn’t scratch up tables and countertops), Potters use these sanding blocks to smooth and finish things like mugs and bowls after firing.

A fresh set of sanding blocks is sure to come in handy for the Potter who makes a lot of tableware.

Useful Gifts For The Pottery Studio: Accutek Digital Scale

It’s not glamorous, but a compact all-in-one digital scale is a workhorse in the Potter’s studio! Whether measuring clay, or ingredients for a glaze recipe, this essential tool is a practical and useful gift for a Potter. This one (Accutek brand) is the right combination of quality and budget friendly, and has a weight capacity of up to 50 lbs.
