Daryl Baird’s Extruder Book has just been revised and re-released, this time with 19 great how-to projects from beginning to end (including beautiful color photographs of the process and the finished pieces!)

Up until today, that is, because the Clay Extruder Users Guide: Tips, Techniques, and Projects for Getting the Most Out of Your Ceramic Extruder is now available for download! To give you a sneak peek at what’s inside, I am presenting this excerpt on making extruded and altered lotion dispensers from David Hendley.
Assemble it correctly. Make sure your extruder is assembled correctly, according to the manufacturer’s instructions. If you bought a used or custom-made extruder, ask the person who sold it to you to cover the operation basics, if possible.
