Floral treatments

Jana Roberts Benzon debuts her newest floral treatments on PolymerClayDaily

Utah’s Jana Roberts Benzon unveiled her most recent series of delicate florals and fans. If you look back at earlier work you can see how she’s refining her fluttery petals.

Jana started out as a floral designer and that love of natural elements and attention to balance and color still influences her creations.

She buries the wires in the clay and on the earrings at the top right, she winds a polymer thread around to cover the join.

Layers of polymer ruffles

New Zealand’s Victoria Mkhitarian’s newest framed art makes me want to run my fingers across its many layers of pale polymer, copper and acrylic paint. She calls her series Ruffles and this closeup on Facebook gives you a better understanding of its construction.

Her Flickr photos also give you a good look at her delicate and luminous works.

The layers in her Ruffles1B (right) incorporates the same thin strips of polymer arranged vertically. In this piece, the layers are tinted with alcohol inks and she omits the copper layers.

Victoria frames these delicacies in deep shadow boxes. Yep, I’m gushing over ruffles!
