Sara’s masterful stitches showcased in a beautifully tapered red and black feather design. Bright red and deep black feathers twist up the sides and just touch the top with a perfect finish at the rim. This masterful coil construction work is created using thin shreds of Chunga palm fibers dyed into various colors, coiled over thicker Naguala palm. Vibrant and rich colors are all vegetal dyes created with roots, berries, leaves, river silt, and natural materials found in the abundant Darien rainforest.
Size and Technique: 8.5″ W x 10″ H, silk-stitch technique creating a soft, silky feel to the finished piece. 9 months in construction.
