Giffin Grip

NEW! Model 10 with Blue Sliders

The Giffin Grip
The Giffin Grip is an invaluable re-centering and holding tool for leather-hard or bisqued thrown pottery. Designed specifically for trimming, it functions equally well for waxing the foot and banding with oxides. After a simple one-time adjustment, the Giffin Grip quickly snaps on and off your wheel. It halves the time previously spent in trimming and makes it practical to trim shapes that might otherwise have been left untrimmed. Note: An individual Giffin Grip does not work in both clockwise and counter-clockwise directions. Most US potters throw in a counter-clockwise direction.  We offer both styles, so be certain to order the direction you require.

Giffin Grip (Complete Package) Includes:

  • NEW! Basic Blue Sliders - for centering plates, bowls and lids
  • 2" & 3" Arms - for holding mugs, tea cups, casseroles
  • 4" & 5" Arms - for small bottles, pitchers, jars
  • 6" Arms - for taller bottles, pitchers, large vases
  • NEW! Blue Wide Sliders - expand the useful diameter to 14” for centering large bowls and platters. (Ship Wt: 9 Lbs)
