Levine puts polymer in the kitchen

Philadelphia’s Emily Squires Levine has launched a new site that showcases her decorative tiles built with a polymer clay base covered in a two-part resin. Durable and heat resistent, these tiles can be used as kitchen backsplashes or as coasters. She’s also drawn to polymer clay bowls and eggs.

Frustrated with the early clays’ stiff consistency, Levine gave up caning for a few years and was delighted when she returned to softer reformulated clays. Says Levine, “My next goal is to create a larger piece, combining multiple tiles which are connected visually through color, pattern and shape.”

Thanks to Martha Aleo for introducing us to Emily’s new site.

    Huge congratulations to Emily on her new site. A highlight of my teaching trip to Philadelphia was meeting Emily (such a wonderful person!!) and seeing her fabulous polymer work. Her bowls and tiles are wonderful!

        So nice to see Emily has a website now. Her work is quite unique and so interesting to see in person. I just love how the resin adds a new dimension to the canes.
