Prayer Feathers with the Creator

SEGMENTED SEGMENTS
A new platter with a Southwestern influence.

SHOP OWNER: Richard Erickson
LOCATION: Santa Barbara, CA

    I thought some would like to see the steps involved in one of my creations. I have tried to teach a few to create the 'Ring of Feathers' but they all feel it's just too much work. The title of my latest work is 'Prayer Feathers with the Creator'.
Prayer Feathers with the Creator

    My Creator/Prayer Feather platter started out with a dream and a desire to create Eagle Prayer Feather. So I worked on that area first - the center of the platter, which is a 15 -inch diameter. I used the same method to produce the Prayer Feathers as the Creator Ring of Feathers. Some people call it inlay, some call it 'segmented segments', I just call it 'bevel cutting'. This I learned in my scroll saw days.
