Lu is a Big Chicken whose feathers are fashioned in collaboration with Belén and Maru Pearce (Amalana Felt) in Argentina. She is a member of 'When Feathers Come Together: A Global Chicken Collection' and has found a good home.
Materials: Fiber— pure Merino wool in the natural color of 20 microns, Silk Gauze, Silk-chiffon, Cotton Gauze, Silk fleece, Black and red dye; Wood; Bronze
Special Collection Note: Due to the fact that these feathers were not crafted in our studio with our traditional materials, these collaborative chickens are considered 'Art Chickens' rather than ‘Chicken Footstools.’

The chickens are sculpted in Kansas City, Missouri with care and delight, upholstered to function as footstools. Each is one-of-a-kind, unique in posture and personality. A turned wood egg-shaped core stands on bronze feet and is connected to a bronze beak. Feathers are fashioned with traditional fiber art techniques- dyeing, felting, spinning, knitting- and are stitched by hand. And a surprise? Their heads bob.
