180 – Eagle Feather

by Don MacKenzie, Huntsville, Ontario

Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 1 customer rating

Winning Bid: $601.00

It’s hard to believe this feather is carved from the same piece of wood that the paddle is, it’s so realistic most people think it’s a feather glued to the paddle upon first glance.  A work of art worthy of a gallery or museum.

Don’s paddle was one of three featured at the Tom Thomson Gallery in Owen Sound this summer.

About the Artist

Eagle FeatherI sculpt for the pure enjoyment of discovering new ways to showcase and present my skills.

I’d like to leave the viewer understanding the allure of birds in their natural habitat; and to be captivated in the splendor that surrounds all of us.

Don was born and raised in New Liskeard, Ontario and has been an avid outdoorsman since early childhood. Here he achieved a deep appreciation for the dramatic natural surroundings that North Temiskaming has to offer. Birds, colorful fall leaves and iridescent feathers became of particular interest.

He started exploring the world of art as a young child doing portraiture, but was eventually captivated by sculpture, first in soapstone and then in basswood and tupelo. Don sets his birds in their own habitat so that the viewers may have a glimpse of nature.

Don’s work can be found in private and corporate collections throughout Canada, the United States, Australia, Europe and Asia.

In 2012 and 2013 Don showed at The One of a Kind Show at The Direct Energy Building in Toronto.

He has won a number of awards at the LaCloche Art Show in Whitefish Falls.

 

Editor’s Note:  Don is well known for his “Hyper realistic” bird carvings with many people collecting his single eagle feathers carved from wood.  This is the first time Don has carved an eagle feather from a paddle. Don’s Eagle Feather paddle is carved down from the wood of the paddle, revealing the feather, it is part of the paddle and not added or glued on.
