Creative de-stressing

Jana Roberts Benzon's polymer forms

Jana Roberts Benzon says that the stunning new works on her site, “…are the fruits of those priceless de-stressing days.”

“The first three show the fun I’ve had playing with form; this type of work is zen-like and apropos to my state of mind. The last three images show my woven style of work, this time with undulating dimension,” she explains.

Jana Roberts Benzon's 3D bargello

In Jana’s Dimensional Woven Brooch, she builds on the bargello style first popularized by Laura Liska and adds dimension within flowing shapes. Jana’s works are sold at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Thanks to Randee Ketzel for the link!

                    I love those organic shapes and the orange-red inside is fabulous. The curled ends are a great touch.
