"Kimono on Green Rod"

Rene Palmer Armstrong

Original Mixed Media

18" X 24" X 1.5" gallery wrapped canvas

"'KIMONO ON A GREEN ROD' is a mixed-media piece comprised of iridized fused glass, polymer clay and acrylic paint. It optimizes the ancient mokume-gane method of mixed-metal laminate into an unpredictable design of pushing one layer of polymer clay deep into other layers creating a one-of-a kind tapestry pattern. Often I use over 20 layers of polymer clay, thinly layered, to create my designs. It's like Christmas morning all over again as I slice into the newly created block of clay to reveal the amazing patterns. This piece is a rear view of a kimono showing off the Obi belt, an integral part of traditional Japanese clothing. The background color of the canvas is burnished copper acrylic paint." -- Rene Palmer Armstrong
