Lorra Lee Rose has been preserving the essence of birds through her mask making since 1987. Over the years she has developed a network of aviaries and pet owners who gather the shed feathers.
The natural colored feathers are primarily from parrot, pheasant, chicken and turkeys. Each bird may molt only a handful of feathers per year. Therefore, it can take years to collect enough to make one mask. The mask base is constructed of paper maché formed over a mold of her husband’s face. The only care necessary is an occasional dusting with, of all things, a feather duster.
Hanging a Lorra Lee Rose creation in your home or office will add a unique asset worthy of many conversations and will be enjoyed for generations.
