These works bring back memories of the 1970s when leather was popular as a sculptural medium because when wet it formed so nicely and retained the shape when it dried. I was thrilled to see these examples of how the artists of today approach the medium. I particularly liked the leather bowl by MIke and the unique masks and flowers. They are all great and I already visited most of the shops. Congrats to all and thanks to Andria for another great post!
