Falling Feathers

'Elements of Time' Collection

Inspired by Lady Amherst’s pheasant feathers, the micro-etching technique records a moment in time as textural lime-waxed feathers appear to float above fumed end-grain oak oyster marquetry.

An oyster is a thin circular slice of wood – in this case from an ancient English oak – that reveals the characteristic concentric patterns of a tree’s annual growth rings.

 

Materials: English oak.
