These are beautiful!  Can I ask what they're made out of?  It kind of looks like lots of amazing colored paper, rolled and cut into sections.  Then shaped into an amazing design...  If that is what it is, it must look incredible in real life.  Whatever it is - you are very skilled and a talented artist.  Well done!!

I like how dense they are. Usually we see quilling all airy and fluid, which is nice, but this is a new spin on it for me. Lovely.

Amazing! I have done quilling (on a much smaller scale!) and enjoyed it a lot, but have to say I have never seen anything quite so large quilled before.  Lovely job of it you did too.  How did you finish them?  If you hung them, did you shadow box frame or have them based on board?

I am sorry - I just saw this now...

I finish them by spraying them heavily with an acrylic spray that includes a UV protectant.  I then matte and frame them without glass.  I create them on art boards - so that gives them sturdy backing as is.

My first thought when I saw your other pictures were peacock feathers!  The thin lines of the paper remind me of feathers, so I practically squeed when I saw that you made a feather-inspired one!  Awesome!
