Product Description
This is my Quilled Penguin and Baby, handcrafted by me in my New Hampshire studio. It is my original design and is one of my 8" x 10" quilled and custom framed "WildLife Scenes". It is triple matted and framed under glass in a black frame as shown. The penguin and the puffin make a wonderful pair.


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.
Inspiration/Story Behind This Product
My first penguins did not have babies. They were well received, but when I realized that the attraction to my loon and baby was the baby, the Penguin babies arrived. And I think the baby adds a reality to the penguin.
Materials Used
