For this decorated vase London’s Olga Perova uses Jana Roberts Benzon’s New Age Bargello methods and applies them to a vessel rather than jewelry. The result is stunning.
Olga cut autumn colored sheets of raised bargello textures into leaf shapes that drape comfortably over the 11″ x 5″ vase’s curves. The rugged terrain of this pattern is best enjoyed up close and the vase shows it off to real advantage.
Here’s Olga on Facebook and Etsy. You may remember her earlier vessels on PCD in September.
A look through Jana’s bargello photos shows you how she continues to push polymer to new textural limits that her students take in all directions.

This is gorgeous! I also wanted to say I got to visit the Creative Journey Studio in Buford, Georgia during Thanksgiving week. Ellen Prophater was there with her granddaughter, making a doll (in polymer of course), and opened the shop to us. It was stunning to see the work of so many artists in one place! Even a few names I wasn’t familiar with. I didn’t want to leave. Bought a few Ron Lehockey hearts, some earrings and supplies I can’t find anywhere else. Heaven.
