In his diary he explains how he held his nose whilst plucking the feathers from a dead heron as he had been working on the object for four days and it became rather pungent. Describing what the form is about he said “[…] in a way I killed off the initial appearance of the feather but what I hoped to get was the essential quality of feather. I won’t accept things on the surface, I want to go a bit deeper, I want to get under the surface.”
