Exploring cutting machines

Sabine Spiesser layers machine-cut pieces of reef on PolymerClayDaily.com

Australia’s Sabine Spiesser has been learning the ins and outs of cutting, using a Silhouette machine and coming up with new designs. Layers of lightweight jointed pieces are slightly textured to resemble felt.

Sabine shares more of her samples on Facebook.

She credits the classes on Craftcast for getting her over some humps. If you’re intrigued by this technology there’s a new machine etching class online with Cindy Pope this Saturday. Instructions for metal clay apply to polymer as well.

Cutting machines offer new possibilities for polymer and we’ve only scratched the surface.
