Extruded polymer bowl

Levine on PCDaily

Emily Squires Levine pushes what a polymer bowl can do with her recent work. Lots of open work and tendrils on this example from the Philadelphia Area Polymer Clay Guild site (there’s an even closer shot here).

Emily uses the extruder to reduce her canes! She taught her method to the PAPCG in February and you can see her basic steps here.

    Wow- clean and crisp. Somehow you’ve mangaged to gain visual balance without exact symetrical repetition. It’s delightfully fresh. Thank you for sharing and the inspiration. –

      Thank you for the wonderful posting about my work but I do want to give credit where credit is due. Fellow Philly Guild member Doc Sarah was inspired when she found BJ of Knightwork’s generous posting about the reduction of canes using a simple extruder. Doc Sarah then shared the process with me so that we could introduce it together at our Guild meeting. This bowl, however, is not created using the extruder, only hand built canes.
      More information about our extruder presentation can be found on our Guild’s February 2013 blog. (http://papcg.files.wordpress.com/2013/02/what-can-the-extruder-do-for-you.pdf).

            Very cool! Never thought of doing anything like that with an extruder. Learn something new everyday;)

                She does amazing work and although I never thought of making bowls out of polymer clay, they look absolutely amazing. And the technique of using an extruder to make a small cane is really useful. Thanks for sharing this with us!
