DEMO #1 Kasi Alhaus’ Extruder Ornamental Corn. Kasi showed us how to create ornamental corn ear canes using our extruders. This is a great way to use up ‘scrap’ clay because this type of grain comes in hundreds of different colors.
She was using her trusty green Makin’s extruder. She rolled out her scrap on the same setting on her pasta machine. Then used a 3/4″ round cutter to form lots of circles from the sheeted clay. She stacked the clay circles alternating colors into a neat round column that fit into the extruder.

It’s been a stressful year – and this fun class is sure to make you smile – maybe even laugh out loud! Capture character-rich critters using simple canes and your imagination. Make pins, pendants, earrings, necklaces, or a frame-able portrait of crazy birds, cats, and dogs. But most of all – have fun!
Join us for a seminar and presentation by guest artist Laura Tabakman. Laura will provide a live look at her use of translucent clay, translucent and colored canes, and other elements to create botanical sculptures (some wearable!). Learn about what inspires her work, her work process, and her approach to art installations. She will also present a slide show that will expand your view of polymer clay art and its place in galleries.

A portion of the ticket price goes to support the Guild’s ongoing expenses.
Laura Tabakman is a fiber artist and a polymer clay artist with an inventive approach to combining materials and techniques to create jewelry, mixed media sculptures, and art installations.
She has a passion for experimenting and working with different approaches to these materials – especially those that are sheer and translucent. Her personal work and creative process with polymer clay is mesmerizing – making you wonder…”How did she think of that?” and, “How did she do that?”
In addition to her own art, she is perhaps best known in the worldwide clay community as one of the lead artists/curators of the 2017 international collaborative exhibition, Into the Forest.
She is an award-winning studio artist, whose work has been shown in exhibitions nationally and internationally and has been featured in books and magazines.
