ABOUT MY TRAYS
Most of us are familiar with leather as being soft and supple. It wasn't always this way. In the medieval times armour was made out of hardened leather. The hardening process was known as Cuir Bouilli, and involved boiling the leather. I am using this technique to create functional art and the trays are an example.
I first carefully select the leather pieces to be used and then laminate two pieces together to give the smooth finish on both sides. When choosing the leather I am careful to select the hides that, to some people would appear to be damaged. They may contain cuts, insect bites, brands etc. To me, these marks add character and rather than refer to them as flaws I prefer to call them experience indicators.
The edges are finished and the leather is then dyed by hand. The leather is then hand shaped using a modern “cuir bouilli” process. This involves the careful use of temperature controlled water and the application of dry heat following the shaping process. The item is then cured and polished.
Being hand made each tray is unique and should provide you with a lifetime of service and pleasure. It will slowly change color over time depending on location, use, exposure to sunlight etc. You will add your own experience indicators. This will ensure that it truly becomes customised by you.
Your tray will hold it’s shape, but It is an organic material and you should not subject it to stress or moisture. It is not to be used for liquids or food.
All orders are shipped via Canada Post. I have chosen the most cost effective method as the default. Should you require express delivery or tracking additional charges will apply.
It seems to take between 10 and 14 days on average for delivery to US addresses.
All sales are final. I do not offer refunds
COLOUR is subjective and can vary considerably from person to person. It also can vary great deal from computer to computer. I have taken great care to ensure that the colours are as accurate as possible, but cannot guarantee that you are seeing what I am seeing.
I have tried to use colour descriptions that are in common use so that you have a description to support the color on the screen.
