Paper cut out feathers, marker pen, gold leaf, silk threads. Stitched and knotted on to Fabriano hot press watercolour paper.
A daily circular Lockdown Walk of 3 miles, calms and restores. What may have begun as an angry stomp, by half way, has softened, raising the eyes and shoulders.
Climbing over the ancient style of a slab of limestone to the home stretch, my pockets are now full of treasures to methodically line up on the Studio shelves. My daily haul!
These cut-out paper feathers contain their own history, each one is individually cut out with scissors and drawn on with marker pens. They are gilded on the tips of the feathers with 23 carat gold leaf.
The ring contains about 180 feathers. The feathers are folded and hand-stitched and knotted onto the backing paper using vintage silk threads.
The rhythm of the days are invested into this piece, transferring peace and hope to anyone who cares to absorb.
