A book about emerging polymer clay ideas and techniques from 125 international artists.
Each of the thirteen featured artists has an intriguing story, personal goals, and challenges to overcome. Some make art as their livelihood, some make for their own amusement or to help others, and others make in order to teach. In all cases, they wanted to share some of their signature techniques in project tutorials. Go behind the scenes and read more about these featured artists.
Projects in the book include mokume gane, extruded canes, and adapted glass-blowing techniques. Kim Korringa shows her flower forming trick and shares her secrets for making many canes from a few by hollowing out their centers and recombining them. Here’s her free sample project.
