With Wings Unfurled - The Powell Garden Festival of Butterflies


The Butterfly Flock

Hello Friends! 

Butterflies have a special way of lifting our spirits. 

When I learned about the annual Festival of Butterflies and shared it with the studio, we were inspired to dream up a new collection in order to join in the celebration. “With Wings Unfurled” is a flock of Chicken Footstools whose feathers display our interpretation of butterfly wings.

The creation of this flock has been a joyful metamorphosis all its own. Contemplating these spectacular creatures has expanded our fiber artistry in new, wondrous directions. Like the moment when you see the new beauty of a butterfly unveiled, we were thrilled to discover the beauty this work yielded and are thankful to share this collection with you now.



I want to say thank you to everyone at Powell Gardens for inviting us to join in the fun of the Festival of Butterflies, for your hospitality to us and the flock, and for caretaking such a wonderful place. I also want to thank our incredible team of artisans whose hands brought all of these ideas into real life!
