i n s p i r a t i o n

I'm a collector, curator, artist, designer, creator... a through-and-through lover of art & design. Searching for the simple life & happy to be finding a bit of it here.

I covet much, but my heart always returns to a deep love for all things rustic farmhouse & heirloom vintage... exposed, honest, organic, rare, age-worn, well-loved. These things never fail to leave me swooning. This sweet love for eras past and a romantic affection for linen, feathers, & storybook…

All Fox & The Feather adornments are handmade by me in my home studio. Every piece is unique and, delightfully so, no two items are exactly alike.  

My work starts with boutique & vintage textiles: linen, silk, cotton, velvet, lace, chiffon, dupioni, shantung, satin, tulle, veil, & Russian netting... I cut, press, shape, stitch, sculpt, paint, dye, & ink every piece by hand, often using vintage millinery tools & time honored accoutrements of faded days. It's a wonderfully slow & meditative process. 

And then there is the Hunt & Gather - collecting is an important component of my creative process. A stray plume, an orphaned twig, a vintage pearl... These lovely & curious finds are near & dear to my heart. I love stitching a home for them into the pieces I create, imagining their stories being woven into place. I have a special fondness for all manner of natural plumes: guinea, goose, pheasant, ostrich... so much loveliness in such a simple thing.

{ are you a gatherer of fallen feathers from your much loved flock?  I'd love to hear from you! }

And without further fuss & flurry, allow me to formally introduce Fox, who is hopelessly head over heels in love with the feather:

{ Fox loves the feather, but the feather is hard to catch.  "I fly on the wind, Fox. You can only bound through tall grasses... Sweet Fox, you won't catch me today." }

Indeed, perhaps another day, sweet Fox... :)
