A Quiller Sacred Feather
This piece was such a joy to create. The family that ordered this has a wonderful tradition of getting a family gift for every year created by an artisan, I was honoured that this year they chose me to create something for them.
The Feather is a red hawk tail feather which is Sacred to the First Nations. I spent a good deal of time looking at many feathers and learning about the hawks before creating this piece, which is something that I truly enjoy about creating custom pieces.
I loved making this feather so much that I have plans to try different feathers from a variety of birds in the future... Any suggestions of birds with a beautiful plumage that would be fun to quill?
