Canes recycled as extrusions

Cane work got you frustrated? Germany’s Andrea Will “varUni7” suggests that you put leftovers in the extruder and have fun! This dramatic example is the result and she’s shows additional experiments and designs on her Flickr site.

One of the most appealing aspects of our craft is that materials can be used and reused. Even baked items can be salvaged by recovering and rebaking them.
