Fran Abrams' work in Unpainted Colors is created from polymer clay and is designed to be hung on the wall like a bas relief. Polymer clay is a man-made substance that begins as blocks of solid-colored clay-like material. The clay colors blend just like blending paints. Like many polymer clay artists, Abrams uses a pasta machine to condition the clay, to blend colors, and to achieve complex designs. Her work is unusual because of what is not there. There is no paint. All of the colors come from the clay itself. The focus is not only on blending the various color clays, but also on manipulating the results to express the themes of the pieces. The works are framed and presented without glass, allowing the viewer to see the intricacies of the designs.
