Announcement   As a Polymer clay artist, my SIMPLE mission for SIMPLE SLICER™ is to provide a polymer clay slicer that is:
1) High Quality
2) Affordable
3) Durable
4) Portable
5) Easy to Use
6) SIMPLE

SIMPLE SLICER™ works equally well with either mokume gane slabs, canes, or larger design constructions. The SIMPLE SLICER™ has an infinitely adjustable acrylic frame that supports the clay while you slice it with a tested SIMPLE SLICER™ peeler.

To allow you to choose your SIMPLE SLICER™ blade (peeler) at a price that suits your budget, we offer two styles of SIMPLE SLICER™ peelers for your SIMPLE SLICER™ frame—pick the SIMPLE SLICER with the peeler of your choice. Sorry, peelers are not sold separately.

The thing I love about the Simple Slicer is that it is easy to use and works on super thin canes and odd sized canes really well. This is my 2nd one. The first got lost in a move and I was totally upset about that. so was really happy to be able to order another one. IT came in great time and in great shape... in fact I plan to keep the box it came in to store it, as it is the perfect size to keep all the parts together!

About

The journey to SIMPLE SLICER

I was introduced to Polymer Clay by Carol Duval in 2005. And I've been using assorted clay slicers since 2006. In 2007 I used a peeler in Dan Cormier's workshop. Then, in 2009 Ellen Prophater introduced me to a wide peeler. But, just like Goldilocks, the small were too small and the big were too big. So I tried almost every cane slicing tool and idea that came along.

My cane slices were always lopsided and 'wonkie' and some of my clay slicers were too small and many broke. I needed something that would cut mokume gane slabs, canes, and pattern sheets. But, it had to be sturdy, portable, and cut thin even slices.

In 2007 I asked my husband to make a frame - that was the first Simple Slicer and I've used several wooden versions of the current Simple Slicer until the sides became splintered. That's when I asked my husband to make one with acrylic. It was perfect!

The cards in the bottom of the slicer tray gives you more versatility. I tried using different sized blocks but they were never right (too small, too big, too many, etc).

Welcome to Simple Slicer. Each Simple Slicer is individually handcrafted in the historic town of Noblesville, Indiana, USA - 30 miles NE of Indianapolis.

Simple Slicer was developed during the last 5 years from my need to make thin and consistent slicers from blocks of polymer clay. It is truly SIMPLE so you might wonder why it took me so long to produce this slicer....... Well, I had been using an old version of this slicer for 4 years but thought it was too simple! Finally I realized that I wasn't alone in my quest for thin and consistent slicers. And other clay slicers are either too complicated, too expensive or didn't slice slabs and billets.

My husband and 'clay' friends encouraged me to make my Simple Slicer available to the 'clay' community. Sooooo here it is: elegantly Simple and highly effective. And, all Simple Slicers are fully inspected and tested by me, Lee Ann Armstrong.
