Leather Art portfolio
Over the years we constantly work to improve our skills by attending classes and trying our hand at different leather patterns with different techniques. This page is a collection of most of the different pieces since the first one in 2019, the “Breaking Out Eagle”. While still under construction as the page progresses we will have galleries for each item showing progress pictures to the final result. Some have more than others because, well, sometimes we forget to take pictures when we get so invested in the project! We hope that you enjoy looking through our work.
Buffalo Skull and Mount
This Koi fish is the product of my first class with Jurgen Volbach, one of the premier leathern workers in Europe! He makes it a point to stop at Elktracks Studio to share his knowledge of leatherworking while in the United States. I learned a very important lesson from Jim Linnell and Jurgen while in this class concerning fixing your mistakes! I will point it out inside with the individual pictures affected.
Koi Fish & Leather Frame
Based on a watercolor picture and born from the imagination of Jim Linnell. This three piece project was a blast to make. I learned new techniques and tested my painting skills with this one.
