America based artist Chris Maynard sculpts mini dioramas using feather by applying various techniques spanning the disciplines of art. Just like a watch maker, Maynard also uses small tools to arrange the cutouts of feathers in a proper way. Designer says “Feathers are structural wonders, serving many functions. They also suggest important universal themes. Feathers are my medium. They are an ultimate achievement of nature and a pinnacle of wonder. After feathers perform their functions on birds, they are molted yearly but keep their beauty and complexity. I want to show feathers in a different light, off the bird. I enjoy highlighting aspects of a feather’s form, pattern or color. If I am successful, I hope to convey some intimate sense of the bird that grew the feathers… feathers are one of life’s perfect wonders; with this in mind, the three dimensional forms, colors, and shapes are preserved as they were on the birds they came from.” [Via Beautifullife]
