Using the sun and ethically harvested pheasant feathers, I develop the image of the feathers on the fabric with the sun. Everything the sun touches turns a deep blue, leaving a white negative of the feathers. This is a 20x20 inch pillow. On the face of the pillow is a pattern created using 12 hen pheasant tail feathers.
***Each pillow is slightly different because they are individually printed with the sun. The feathers leave a white negative image ranging in exposure of detail surrounded by deep blue. I arrange every feather on EACH textile piece--and develop the image on the fabric with sunlight. My artwork is inspired by the beauty of it's subject: feathers. The feathers come from ethically harvested wild birds; harvested by myself, my husband, or a close friend.
