I can never totally predict how will be the final effect of the piece I'm working on. A feather is a material so full of life that you can modify its shape only until a certain point, then it's done and it's like the feather itself chooses its own place on the mask. It's an everyday experiment with all kind of feathers trying to create new shapes and effects, not always a success.
Here are a few photos of some works in progress showing steps of the research and the building of a few masks.
Pheasant, goose, ostrich are some of the feather types I like to use.
