Ripple Blade

rippleblade5.jpgMarie Segal introduced me to this specialized blade designed to cut vegetables, while she was demonstrating how to make “wavy-gravy” mokume by cutting lengthwise down a jelly roll cane. It was definitely one of those WOW! moments in polymer clay history. Always an innovator and pioneer , Marie’s version of abalone shell. (as pictured here) is one of the most spectacular uses of this blade.

Most often I use the blade to cut rick -rack for onlay work. But, if you have a cane that you are not exactly thrilled with…cut across the grain and prepare to be amazed.rippleblade.jpg
