Millifiori is one of Toni Ransfield's favorite techniques with polymer clay, so she decided to open a shop to sell her work to pen makers so they to can enjoy the beauty that she creates.
Toni Ransfield's love for clay started at a young age. Before polymer clay Toni was a studio potter. When Toni could no longer fit behind the potters wheel and needed something to do with her hands for creativity, she discovered polymer clay. That was in 1991. Since then Toni has been obsessed with it. Polymer clay gives her the creativity that is loved with the vast range of colors the clay comes in as well as creating her own color palette. Her complete bio can be found in the 'about us' link on teh bottom of every page or here.
Millefiori means " thousand flowers" in Italian. Millefiori is Toni Ransfield's true passion. It was originally an ancient glass making technique but it is now applied to polymer clay with wonderful results! Toni Ransfield loves making large canes with a pattern that runs through the entire cane. Slices are then cut from the cane and applied to practically any project that can be cured in a home oven.
Toni Ransfield takes great pride in her work and each and every piece is unique and one of a kind. It is her hope that you will love her art as much as she loves creating it for you. Toni cuts slices of several different floral canes that she has made and applied them to the pen, her cane slices are thinner than any machine on the market and thinner than most everyone in the polymer clay community. Then Toni carefully smoothes the cane slices onto the pen and baked in the oven till cured, sanded and buffed to a high sheen. For extra protection a very thin coating of gloss is then applied to keep the pen as shiny as it was when it has been purchased..
