Quilled Hummingbird and 50 similar items
More details about this itemHandcrafted by me in New Hampshire. Beautiful 8x10 Quilled Hummingbird, triple matted as shown, and custom framed under glass in a black wood frame as shown. Other bird designs are available. Quilling is the art of rolling narrow strips of paper, forming the rolls into shapes and using those shapes to form delicate designs -- quilling, my way, includes adding a cut out over the quilling to produce beautiful wildlife art. This is one of my "WildLife Scenes" collectible series. It is my original design of 8" x 10" quilled and is custom framed. All are matted and custom framed in an oak frame as shown. What is Quilling? Quilling is a very old craft. Its name comes of the old practice of trimming the gold edges from books, and then winding the narrow strips of paper around feather quills, using the quill for the tool. Once rolled into circles and pinched into various shapes, the paper is used as texture and detail in pictures. My own technique uses the quill work as a background and details to cut-outs of wildlife. The quill work simulates the feathers in the duck and birds, the scales on the fish, the veins in the wildflowers, and the fur on the moose.
