The task - Carve a birds feather realistically.
The Medium: Siberian Mammoth Ivory, 15,000 - 25,000 years old
The Result - Feathers so beautifully carved that it's hard to believe they are hand done. Yet, a lifetime of carving shows in each piece, as does the human need to communicate through art of all forms. Neanderthals did so and included mammoth ivory for many uses including jewellery, tools and shelter. We carry on this tradition and have used wing and feather designs to bring on the Summer.
We select high quality mannoth ivory fragments for this work, and then set them in silver.
