Description

In Venetian glassmaking, slender rods of molten glass (canes) are shaped, then cut to reveal amazingly detailed patterns: flowers, geometric shapes, dancing colours.

These slices are called millefiori, 'thousand flowers', because they form a carpet of flowers when placed side by side.

Now celebrity author Donna Kato shows how to re-create these intricate, fascinating designs in polymer clay.

She reveals the entire process: how to work with polymer clay, the basics of planning and creating a cane and using colour effectively.

Dozens of examples are included and everything is clearly explained and illustrated with full-colour photographs.

This work also includes examples of stunning work by such noted millefiori artists as Kathy Amt, Pier Voulkos and Kathleen Dustin.

Donna Kato is a teacher, product designer & artist. She served as a representative for Sculpey and Fimo and has partnered with the art-materials manufacturer Van Aken to design her own line, Kato Poly Clay.
