What Chris Maynard does with feathers is completely whimsical. He transforms the fallen quills into silhouettes of the animals that they fell from. Therefore, reuniting the silky smooth feathers with their avian masters.

The American artist’s ‘Featherfolio’ work includes crow, peacock and pigeon plumage among others. He uses special surgical scissors to cut out distinct bird patterns into the discarded quills, creating majestic works that highlight the beauty of the feather and the animal. In a sense, you could say that it is the tuft of fluffy feathers that make the bird. Chris Maynard infuses the lost plumes with meaningful beauty. They are not just the soft fringe found on a flying creature, but also a marvel of colors and intricate patterns.
