that`s a great idea to built sculptures with feathers!

wow it looks amazing, so real...

When i saw it I felt like there is a monster coming out from all those places.

It's great idea and so inventive!

Thanks for sharing it

where do all the feathers come from, detached from their owners so we could turn their feathers into neat-o art/entertainment?

Hi Jana, the feathers are not detached from the birds!

In an interview kate mccgwire said:
"I am currently using pigeon feathers as they come from a bird that is generally reviled - regarded as vermin and referred to as ‘rats with wings’. I started to collect pigeon feathers that moulted from the birds in a shed next to my studio – I realised that they were actually very beautiful"
