An online art gallery of previous feather works and available feathers by Dusty Souls Art.
Painted feathers originated in Native American culture as a form of decoration and expression. In the 19th Century, British merchant sailors learnt the craft and used it on long sea journeys to pass the time and, like scrimshaw artists on the whalers, made trinkets for their loved ones back home.
It's a lengthy and painstaking process and only a handful of UK artists create these pieces.
I use feathers that come from natural molt or reputable sources only.
