DescriptionIn 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.

Reviews for The Art of Polymer Clay Millefiori Techniques
Fabulous book Ã??Ã?Â¢?? so inspiring
This is my third Donna Kato book and it does not disappoint. It is a fabulous book - so inspiring - I did not know I could get that excited by polymer clay. Brilliantly detailed photography and instructions, I just cannot wait to try out all the techniques. The project ideas are really interesting and as usual, Donna's work is executed to the highest standard. It is also nice to see examples of other artists' work to illustrate certain techniques. If you want to make canes and learn millefiori techniques - this is the book. by Claire Fairweather
