As much as I love the idea of being whisked away by my latest all-consuming project, I also know what it feels like to be out of balance. I much prefer being in charge of my time and my life, and that’s why I loved this conversation with Chris Maynard. Chris turns feathers into intricate art. Working with delicate tools, he carves into feathers to create images of the very creatures that shed them.
