Pendulum Swing to Leather

"Everything But the Bones"
White wolf hobo bag
with pink garment hide
and grey suede lining...

Mushroom Portrait on birch bark with fungi
scalloped edges

"We Gather Together"
portrait of a soul in flight
(based on a photograph by the incomparable Laurie Brown)
tooled leather purse

These are the things my hands did today, small increments of progress on each piece
as Orion and the babysitter enjoyed their time together.

My fingers ache and the callous on my middle right finger is throbbing with overuse.
I don't care:
I look at this collection and I see the most meaningful
fearless work
exploring themes and places so fresh

death and rebirth
the symbolic kindness of fungi
the comfort of darkness
and beauty of predatory animals...

May is for making whatever I choose.

In June I am toying with the idea of offering a few custom slots in the metal and leather shops.
we'll see!!

A good night to you.
