The sponge holder is a great tool accessory for potters! This tool is an alternative to sponge-on-a-sticks because the Sponge Holder allows you to use any type of sponge you like! You are no longer restricted to the sponge that is permanently attached to a stick, but rather you can continuously change the sponge for different effects. The Sponge Holder is great for removing excess water on the interior of wheel-thrown pots. The Sponge Holder is made from a sturdy metal, which will not bend in use. The one end is welded to a metal clip, which firmly clasps any sponge. Measures 11.5" SPONGE NOT INCLUDED.
