Pigeon Feathers

I've seen feathers burned onto pots just like horse hair and thought I'd give it a try myself. This was just a test so I grabbed a small pot of the bisque shelf and gave it a try.
I used pigeon feathers because that is what I had. While taking a smoke break at work I noticed a bunch of feathers in the parking lot so I snatched them up and took them home to burn.
This is a white raku clay body that was not burnished. I'd say my test was successful so I guess I'll start collecting feathers.
