Katie and Loni talk about feathers this week! They start off by giving a little clarity on the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918 (what feathers you can have and why), then get into cool shit you can do with feathers and mostly inspiration you can bring from feathers into your mixed media arts and crafts. There are sidebars o’ plenty this week and Katie has a cold so sorry about the sniffles (also, Loni seems a little quiet this week as well for some reason).
Go look at the pretty Pintrest board for this episode here.
If you would like more information on the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918 you can read about it on the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Services act here.
And for a list of birds not protected by this act in the U.S. it begins on the third page of this document.
Katie couldn’t find good videos on feathering blown glass but she did find an awesome article on the Visual News website about the glorious kinetic sculpture rings of artist Dunk Yoon. You can read that here.
And just because they are amazing, here are some videos of the jewelry and a sculpture for you to drool about.
