Landscape and cat canes

Maine Coon Cat polymer clay cane by Jayne Dwyer

I’m mesmerized by landscape polymer artists like Jayne Dwyer of Maine. I went in search of more of Jayne’s Paper Moon jewelry and found a bit here and here and on Facebook.

She doesn’t make it easy to feature her work but I couldn’t resist.

This Maine Coon Cat was made from her recycled gray clay.

Jayne’s scenes will put old-time caners in mind of Mike Buessler. Slices of these vista canes stand on their own, no embellishment necessary.


All blessings and good wishes have been gratefully received. We said goodbye to an elderly family member, patched up a young one with a successful surgery and are doing our best to look after a dear friend. I’m back in service.

      Hi Cynthia,
      Glad you’re back! Did I ever tell you I found a pin by Mike Buessler at a yard sale years ago? I treasure it! I told the person from whom I bought it what it was, but I still got it for 50 cents!

        Love the Maine Coon Cat cane! Such detail!
        We found a stray Coon Cat while on a vacation in Maine one summer, my Mom had that cat for another 10 years!
        Hope all is well on the home-front
        Glad to see up & running today:)

                I, too, am impressed by the detail. And the reference to Mike Buessler reminds me that I still have the sky/clouds cane I made in his landscape class in ’98 and never finished because it needed a focal point. I was going to put a hot air balloon into it. It is the old fimo classic so I’ll bet I still could.
