Savannah - new headdress March 18 2016, 0 Comments
The best thing about returning home after being in sunny, warm(ish) New Orleans is finally having the time again to create new work. I was prompted to make this headdress as someone requested it (and it struck me as an excellent idea). Beginning pattern making for this piece, I could see it wasn't going to be easy. Each horn is 12" tall and during the wet shaping process leather becomes very pliable and does not easily submit to my will nor hold it's shape. I didn't think things would end well but, little by little, Savannah was born. I'm still mesmerized by the power of this process. I've included Savannah as part of my online collection titled "Headdresses" for those who wish to run wild with it.
