Plants – Japanese
1 in stock
Name : PLANTS – JAPANESE
Type : Statement Pendant
This is one of my pendants from the PLANTS range under the Ooh-La-La category.
It is made from polymer clay using Donna Kato’s component caning technique. This is different from the cane technique used to create the WackyGeo tile pendants.
The canes made here are the elements only – the branches, leaves and the petals of the flower. They are added to the scene in exactly the same way as you would paint a scenery. You start with the background, then you add the elements in the background and slowly work your way to the foreground. This is really, painting with polymer clay.
Why Japanese? This form of painting is intended to mimic the Japanese art of painting on silk canvas (eginu) called kenpon chakushoku.
The ‘canvas’ that you see here is polymer clay with a layer of gold paint. The polymer clay elements (branches, leaves and red berries) are added onto the gold painted polymer canvas.
Component caning is not new. Most people use this technique to create wonderful 3D artworks on a polymer clay sheet. Donna Kato’s method is to blend ALL elements into the background. The end result is a FLAT surfaced finished piece, like a painting. It is very tedious but well worth the effort.
The surface of this piece is left as it is made, i.e. unsanded. A layer of Renaissance wax has been added to protect the gold paint.
The polymer piece sits in a raised sterling silver frame, made especially for it. There is lots of space to slip your choker or chain through the frame.
The frame is darkened so as not to clash with the colors of the polymer clay. All the colors used here are mixed from primary colors of blue, red and yellow.
