Cane and caning


A natural, fibrous weaving material used in the production of baskets and chair seats, and in wrapping the joints of wicker furniture. Cane is cut into long strips from the inner layer or skin of the rattan plant. Various widths are available. Stains do not penetrate cane well, and paints don't adhere well either. Fortunately cane has a naturally occurring glossy finish, making varnishes unnecessary.In glass, a cane is a thin, monochrome rod, or a composite rod consisting of groups of rods of different colors, that are bundled together and fused to form a polychrome design that is visible when seen in cross-section, as in millefiori.
