Why bamboo? Bamboo pottery tools have been widely used by production potters in the Orient for centuries. As a potter's tool material, bamboo typically outperforms wood with its superior water resistance, durability and light weight. Aesthetically attractive bamboo is a wise environmental choice too; it regenerates very fast and can be harvested repeatedly making it one of the most renewable and abundant natural resources on the planet.
