I have always been an enthusiastic hobbyist and collector and indeed have collected many new hobbies over the years.
As well as making art, sculpture and music I enjoy working with leather. I am completely self taught from books and the internet but only use my own designs. Each piece is a hand sewn “one-off” with no use of machines.
Working with leather requires patience, care and precision to achieve the best results, much like dentistry.
I make many types of pieces but with a particular emphasis on boxes.
* Hide Travel bag (photo above). This bag took many hours to make but the visible wear and tear is testament to more than 20 years of use
* Hide watch box with calf hinge and tan suede lining
* Calf document folio with piped edges, hide details and brass buckles
