Mayorova on PCDaily

Russia’s Tanya Mayorova tightly winds thin strips of polymer round and round until their layers of muted color form a dense flower-like composition that is accented with dots of metal.

She pairs these polymer cabbage roses with rough cords, leather or even scarves for a very romantic and sophisticated look.

Tanya is such a trickster with texture that even when you zoom in on her work on Flickr, it’s hard to figure out how she could have packed them so densely. Have a lovely weekend.

        Stunning! Absolutely STUNNING!! Her whole flickr site has me so thrilled…I am always looking for direction for my own work….and this is right down my dream alley! I bought your book today, by the way, I look forward to reading every page. Thank you so much for helping me with my polymer clay addiction, I mean, education.

            I really enjoyed looking at Tanya’s work in Flickr! I really like her style! It’s so interesting to see how artist’s seem to take “this road or that” as far as creative style. And, it’s so wonderful to see this “global pc community” setting aside everything and just being creative and communicating in this way!

                    I really love these! They look like cane end bits that were sliced very thin. They have amazing color combinations. Lover her Flikr site, too.
