One of my most prominent pieces was a phoenix that I made in either late 2015 or early 2016. It depicted a phoenix rising out of flames and has been one of my most sought-after pieces ever. So it wasn’t surprising that this customer contacted me to make a paper quilled phoenix logo for a friend of their’s that owned a gym (maybe?).
The customer provided me with the logo and just requested that I fill it in decoratively. I found that the small spaces to work inside and the rigidity of the existing logo format were kind of challenging. I think that it squashed my creativity slightly. Part of me wishes I had redone it, and part of me thinks that the end result was likely exactly what she was looking for.
This paper quilled phoenix logo was pretty simple to make. I created an SVG file to cut with my cricut of the base ouline. I filled in the wings with flames. I made a sort of webbing on the black wing with black paper and gilded paper. I used tight coils on the breast. Loops filled the outer orange arc. Loose coils filled the black outside arc. I placed a strip of white paper in two sections to create the illusion of a highlight.
I am currently taking commissions. If you have a project in mind, please feel free to contact me.
