Jeweller pushed technically to create lifelike pewter feathers.
Jeweller Dower & Hall has designed four feathers for a deluxe box set for rock ’n’ rollers Kasabian’s fourth album.
The four pewter feathers, which each have a slightly different design, will be included in a box set alongside the band’s Velociraptor! album. Only 1,000 of the box sets have been made for distribution worldwide.
The Dower & Hall pewter feathers have been treated with a specially developed plating technique to provide a blackened colour. The pewter designs have been made to represent feather designs featured on Kasabian singles cover.
Dower & Hall design director Dan Dower said: “Making the impossible a reality is what we thrive upon. When Sony records approached us on behalf of Kasabian to create four styles of realistic feathers in metal, we were extremely excited with the chance.
“Through the seamless blend of the highest technology and master hand-craft skills we have been able to create four exquisite pieces which could only be produced in this way – detailed and delicate as a feather, yet strong and durable as metal. Being able to work alongside such a world renowned band of excellence, we know is a once in a life time opportunity, but we hope it isn’t the last.”
