Our Customers Say:

"Mixing more glazes for the last glaze load this week. So grateful for this Talisman sieve every time I use it. Don't know how I worked without one."
~Nancy Gallagher, Nancy Gallagher Pottery 

"Cannot believe I have lived so long without a Talisman sieve. Used mine for the first time to sieve my casting slip. Truly unbelievable. 10 minutes to do what used to take close to an hour."
~ John Shirley, John Shirley Ceramics

I tend to prefer non-gadgety equipment, but I must say I was pleased with my Talisman. Seems solid and well designed upon use.
~ Erik Wold, Pottery by Erik Wold

I have had a talisman sieve for years and it is still going strong, I haven't had to change the brushes yet....I definitely can recommend to others.
