Polymer Clay Chameleon:

The works of this artist is the reason why I got interested in millefiori technique, and, as a result of it, in selling my own works.

The name of this artist is Barbara Sperling. I came across her web site when I just started working with polymer clay, and was mesmerized by the beauty and complexity of her canes. I must have spent hours studying her designs!  Barbara's works always have a very polished, high-end look.  I especially like how she constructs her pendants using one central cane surrounded by borders and other decorative elements made of smaller canes complementing the main design. I never had a pleasure of conversing with Barbara, but I respect her as one of my virtual teachers in the art of polymer clay.

I was so glad to see you feature the work of Barbara Sperling. I too, came across her work back when I first began polymer clay! I just love how she creates "scenes" in her millefiori and while I tend to work more in sculpture than millefiori, she never ceases to inspire me.

Thanks for sharing this very talented polymer artist!
