Bounette's flower canes - week 18 of canes

Hi Everyone,

I'm still working on a couple of tutorials for canes that I'll be posting on this blog later (or perhaps I will submit to Polymer Cafe).  In the mean time, I thought I'd show you some canes that really caught my eye.  They're from Bounette, in France.  I love these and might have to re-think my aversion to making flower canes though I suspect that just getting the cane all the same shape all the way through might be a challenge for me. 

If you're ever wondering what to do with kaleidoscope remnants, the flowers might be the things to try.

Bounette is a beautiful caner - I love her work.  If you're one of those that have tried to make a butterfly cane and then don't know what to do with it, check out her work here

I'm also particularly fond of her colour scheme in the flowers here

She doesn't always do flowers.  A cute little house cane is here.

Her blog is in French but if you view it with Google translator it comes out OK with a bit of whimsy that isn't in the original version.  It seems to want to call canes ducks in English.

Gorgeous! Thanks for the tip :) I have been trying to come up with something better to do than scrap those ends!
