Linden Sweden Deep Notched Rolling Pin Available at Amazon: https://tinyurl.com/yb4j8pcz I see that the price has gone up 25% since I bought mine a year ago, but I still think it's a good price for a great product - you can also use it for making Swedish flatbread, IF you thoroughly wash all the clay off first. One charming review reads, "This item was ordered in the UK, was dispatched from the USA and was made in the Czech Republic, despite being "Swedish". Although I initially bought this for surface texture, I have found other applications. It's great for brushing a glaze on and then sponging it off the high points - if you're good, maybe you could apply a second glaze to just the high points. It's also excellent for using with glazes that "break" with changes in surface texture. One of my pieces uses that, but it's on a dark clay so the glaze doesn't achieve its full effect. Yet another thing I've tried is dropping a bit of varying glazes in each pocket, OR doing the same with small bits of other clays - either wet or as grog. However, in this last case I'd suggest tamping the clay insert down a bit, and best to do this on pieces that will lie flat. I built one of my slab-wrap cups doing this, and it was a horror show trying to roll the slab vertically without the clay bits falling out. Perhaps a better approach might be dropping multiple clay slips in after formed? The one thing I would suggest is filing/sanding the outside before using, as there is a fairly sharp point on each of the protrusions.
