The line, color, and textures of tribal symbolism in ancient cultures inspires me as I continually experiment with the texture & form possibilities of leather. An endless, fascinating journey. Each bag starts as a 2D work of art, pintucking strips of leather, then combining them by satin stitching. The vegetable tan leather accents are individually hand carved (tooled), then stained & varnished. Finally, it is stitched into a 3D functional piece of art.
