5.0 out of 5 stars Answers the Question: What can you do with an extruder?, Nov. 30 2000
This review is from: The Extruder Book (Hardcover)
This is a great book for the person who wants to see the huge variety of things that can be made with an extruder, and who wants some ideas of how to make many of them. Some projects look straightforward (and could be made by a beginner) whereas others appear quite advanced. Some can be made with a smaller extruder, yet others required a much larger extruder. Many photos and drawings (some in color, some in black and white), with a lot of discussion about the various commercially available extruders and dies, as well as DIY extruders and dies. This is a comprehensive book, with a lot of discussion with a number of potters who actively use their extruders. It includes a number of "neat tricks" I found impressive. Definitely worth reading AND owning. This is the kind of book where you get ideas of things you want to make NOW, as you read it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth owning!, May 14 2000
This book has MANY color photographs of a wide variety of different types of extruded ceramic works. It gives an excellent overview of things done mostly in recent years, and offers inspiration and direction to ceramic artists who owns extruders and those who are thinking of buying one. There are also several projects described and shown in the book step by step. The author has focused on showing the wide range of works that can be created using an extruder, including showing the die shapes used.
