Simple Paper Quilled Ravens

I used to collect crows and ravens. And, for many years my family would buy me knickknacks and gifts that were crow- or raven-themed. I still love these creatures, but have tempered my interest in them with my love of a clean, clutter-free, knickknack free home! One of my first real commissioned pieces were for these simple paper quilled ravens. And, I enjoyed making them so much that I made some extra, although at the time I was stupid and didn’t take pictures of everything I made!

These guys were made with really basic quilling techniques. The larger wing feathers were combed and the other smaller body parts and segments were made with quills. I think they’d look really nice done totally in edgework, and I have always had it on my list to make a full-size raven for my own walls. Maybe some day…

I have one of these Simple Paper Quilled Ravens left, but it’s old and musty and the background has aged. However, if you want your own raven or even set of ravens, I am currently taking commissions.
