It may surprise you to know how much entertainment one can get from a pair of tinner snips and a tin can. For two days now have been put in on cutting and bending feathers like this one to form the headdress of a raku fired mask. Magic! Making them until my hand felt sore, I have. I’m liking the way they turning out, I just wish for some lustrous colors. While I’m wishing, I wish I could have shown the process to that bored teenager I was in the summer of 1967; she would have turned a boat load of these out. It is exciting just thinking about these on the mask. Fun, fun, fun.
