The Bellbird Bat system is made from 97% hardwood and 3% natural wax with a light white paint cover. This makes them very sturdy and water resistant and therefore not warping. We still recommend not to use sharp or scratchy metal tools on them to protect the surface.  After throwing, let your piece dry for a bit and lift it of the insert bat. Clean the insert bat and keep them dry.

We use our bat system at our Pottery School, and it has proven to work very well and saves a lot of time and storage space. Our students put a chamois on the wheel first, then put on the bat frame and then insert the bat. They damp the insert bat a little bit and put their clay on.  When they are finished with throwing, they cut off their piece and lift the insert bat up.

We have specifically made a little gap with a bevel, so you can easily use your finger or a wooden tool to flip it out
