A totally unique piece of framed artwork, simply perfect for all those country lovers. Part of the “Athletic Game” collection “The Long-jump” (a leaping hare) is a silhouette filled with natural and vibrant pheasant feathers.
This piece of art is a great gift for those who enjoy game hunting or for those who want to bring a touch of the countryside into their home and obviously if you love bunnies and hares – this is a must have!
This beautiful piece is hand created by myself in the Worcestershire countryside. I was inspired to create such artworks after a family friend gave me bags full of pheasant feathers from his recent catch. I wanted to create something unique and bring my love of paper-crafting into it too, that’s when this wonderful idea came to mind and was born.
Because of the handmade nature of this item, no two of these will be the same, feather placements may vary along with feather variants.
The silhouette is cut by hand using a sharp knife out of linen like paper with black flecks to give it a rustic feel. I then place the feathers according to the shape to bring out and highlight such characteristics like ears, face and legs. It is then finished with a white square mount and placed into a square white frame which helps brings out the colours of each of the different feathers.
These frames can be stood up on a table or hung upon your wall but I recommend – to get the best out your new purchase – that you place it where it will catch the light to enhance all of the beautiful variants of colour.
