    Whoa. This is powerful Mo. The eel skin adds a memory of feathers, but also a threat…a reminder of the underworld. Earth and sky together (and sea as well, if you include the actual origin of the skin), which is probably the reason crows and ravens are magical. This piece certainly is.

    • Mo Crow says:

      Thanks for the good words Dana, the eelskin is the most beautiful material to work with, very thin but stretchy and strong, it’s become a wild thing!

    Wow ! you are amazing ! i can’t not believe what you have done with this eye and feather !

  3. fiberels says:

    Wow that little black man is really looking “evil” away !!
    Eel skin ? is a bit like thin leather ? (I’ve once seen salmon skin …)
    Lovely black and white feather (an eye too)

    • Mo Crow says:

      Hi Els, I had’t seen that little black man in there but there he is, thanks for seeing him! eelskin is a very fine thin leather, stretchy strong and takes the stitches very well, you can see the pentacle pincushion I made with it last year here & here

  4. Andrea says:

    I love this! Kathy’s work is awesome! Sure wish I could come and see it in person!!!

  5. Carol says:

    Strong and beautiful, Mo, like everything you do.

  6. handstories says:

    wow! I think it’s breathing!

  7. This is a gorgeous and very powerful-looking piece, Mo. I agree with handstories that it looks like it’s breathing… and only you would know where to get eelskin… fantastic! I wish I could examine every little part of it in person…
