THE CUTTING EDGE STORE IS CURRENTLY CLOSED


We started selling Cutting Edge Peelers when we deputed our flagship peeler workshop, The Cutting Edge, in early 2005. 

We launched our first website three years later, broadened our brand, and gave a home to the one and only place to get our boutique collection of precision tools, original tutorials, and digital books for polymer clay.

The Cutting Edge Online Store officially closed its doors on Friday, August 31, 2018.

To offer a more streamlined online shopping experience, to review our collection of custom Cutting Edge products, enhancing the classics and introducing some new additions, and to asses our fulfillment and shipping systems to make those products as accessible as possible, we've closed the doors now... so that we can re-open them later with an even better online store.

In the coming months, our focus will be on our online courses. Some tools may be available to students who are registered within our classroom. But other than that, The Cutting Edge Store will remain closed until further notice.

Even if you're not registered in any of our upcoming online courses, please stay in touch! 

Add your name to our Guest List here. We look forward to inviting you back to our online store.


Here's a look at some of the precision tools and original techniques we've developed over the past two decades, so that you'll know what to look froward to when The Cutting Edge Store re-opens...


PEELERS

Our Cutting Edge Peeler was the tool that started it all, debuting in 2005 as a brand new blade for precisely slicing polymer clay.

We introduced the WIDE Peeler in 2010 (at IPCA's Synergy 2 in Baltimore), giving Holes & Lines, Stripes, and Canes double the potential with double the width.

In our first ever online MasterClass in January 2018, the WIDE Peeler played a starring role revealing the infinite pattern possibilities of Single Slice Mokume.

DIE SETS

Geometrics, Organics, Polygons, Insects, and our newest series, Diatoms, are available in sets of 5 or 9 different sizes. Each Die is a two-part tool that includes the cut-out shape and its perfectly matching framing window.

Here's a peek at the complete collection of Shapes we've introduced since debuting our Die Sets in 2008…

DIE SET TRIOS

As longer leaner shape variations, the Trios are handy sets of three that can be used on their own, or to complement their companion shapes in the regular Die Set collection.

RELIEF BEYOND BELIEF

Give your flat veneers Relief Beyond Belief with Cutting Edge Die Sets, the original tool for turning sheets into shapes, and shapes into forms...

GOT TOOLS? LEARN HOW TO USE 'EM!

If new tools aren't on your list right now, but new techniques are, be sure you have all the latest news about our upcoming online courses. We have been developing and teaching original techniques for polymer clay since 1996.

In 2011, we released our first digital MasterClass book, RELIEF BEYOND BELIEF. and followed up with a companion title, DESIGNING WITH DIES in 2012.

After more than two decades teaching in-person workshops all over the world, we are now offering online classes so you can learn from the source, in your own space, at your own pace, no matter where you are.

We started the online teaching adventure in January 2018 with SINGLE SLICE MOKUME, an exploration of decorative veneers using our WIDE Peeler. We followed that with BUILDING BETTER BEADS in June, and many of our students were SSM alumni, looking for ways to turn their new veneers into gallery-quality pieces. Our latest workshop, BIOFORMING, debuted in November 2018.

We've also got three more courses already on the calendar for 2019. The new year begins with an all-new still-to-be-announced MasterClass. After that, we're offering by-popular-demand replays of both BUILDING BETTER BEADS and SINGLE SLICE MOKUME.
