Another one of a kind from The Dancing Moose!
A new product for the Moose in 2016 is a range of Vases, Jugs, Containers, Jars, … I am sure there will be other names for them as they continue to evolve. They have a number of uses that I can think of: holding pencils, pens, art brushes, coins, wrapped candy, wine bottles, camera lenses…I am sure this list is endless.
I carefully select the leather, looking for leather that has character. My intent is not to create an unblemished machine perfect item, rather, to craft a work of art that can and will be used. A piece of art that will continue to be in the finishing process as the owner adds their experience marks to the piece, and the leather develops its patina as it ages.
I draw heavily from Nature when designing my pieces and Nature does not have perfectly machined edges, few lines are perfectly straight, and there is a roughness about a lot of nature that results in a rugged beauty. That is what I try to capture when making a piece. And, like nature my pieces are meant to be used, to be experienced. The life events of the owner will improve the character and add to the uniqueness of the art.
These pieces are meant to bring a quiet enjoyment to the owner, to aid in their experience. To be practical and useful as well as beautiful - just like Nature. They are to be used, to be touched often, to become an heirloom.
While I may follow a theme for some of them; making some of them similar, they are all different. Each one is unique and an original.

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.
