Millefiori means Thousands of Flowers and is the name of a quit complicated and skillful process. Starting out with plain polymer clay and various techniques, designs of different character is created inside a clay rod. These rods will then be used to create larger, more literal designs, such as flowers or geometrical images. The design inside the cane goes the entire way through, but will stay intact though being reduced in size. Tiny slices are cut from the cane and applied to a clay ball or larger armatures.
