Mallard - Stained Glass Feather
From the maker:
"Stained glass feathers are crafted in our workshop located on the mountainside, shadowed by Seneca Mountain in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont.
All are hand cut w/copper foil with silver, black or copper patina veins. Each feather has a pearl white quill (the opal side being the right side of the feather.) The handmade glass comes from various places - each sheet of glass is unique and there may be slight variations in color. The earthy textured glass used in the Red Tailed Hawk, Rufous Hummingbird and the Cedar Waxwing is called: Youghiogheny pronounced [yok-uh-gey-nee] glass .
Home of the Abernaki Indians, respect for Mother Earth still thrives in this wilderness with its' wildlife and and high elevation ecosystems. One of the nation's largest migration sites is in the nearby Nulhegan Basin, South America Pond.
The feathers are artistically rendered to represent our diverse avian visitors and other birds of the United States."
Me and my pops decided we wanted to share something we both love, I love feathers and he loves to create stained glass art. Together we are sharing with everyone our father and daughter approach to hand crafted family goods.
