Artist Marcella Wells said, "'Feline with Flowers' is a mischievous kitty who has a bit of an attitude. She loves to play with flowers, and those she is playing with here are constructed from polymer clay canes. Caning is a precise form of Millefiori (Italian for 'a thousand flowers') that involves slicing patterned rods of clay to make original patterns ... in this case, flowers. All colors are mixed from unique polymer clay hues."
Marcella is a local polymer artist. Her specialty is polymer jewelry and small, framed polymer compositions. In addition to the Millefiori shown in "Feline with Flowers," Marcella also uses Soutache (decorative coils and swirls) and Mokume Gane (layering and carving).
