There's nothing that sparks the creative soul more than a walk in the woods. So much of our time is spent outdoors getting lost among the trees or simply day dreaming in the vegetable garden. When we pursue fragrances to add to the candle line we first look to greatest artist of all, Mother Nature.
I lived across from a wild bird sanctuary in upstate New York for five years in my twenties. Many of my mornings were spent beside a limestone creek with coffee and a camera. I took thousands of photographs over the years of birds while they were in the process of taking flight. There's something incredibly symbolic about that particular moment. Taking off requires courage, energy, passion for adventure and an individual sense of direction. It was this photo series and that time spent sitting still with the outside when the Rising Feather brand was born.
