Cut Feathers Shadowboxes


American artist Chris Maynard gives homage to nature through the plumage of birds with his ‘Featherfolio’. Work by plying various techniques spanning the disciplines of art, design and craft Maynard carefully sculpts mini dioramas of the the flighted creatures – using feathers as his canvas. Maynard uses small eye surgery scissors, forceps, scalpels, and magnifiers to arrange the cutouts of feathers that have been used with permission from private aviaries and zoos.
