“Good design is what makes functional objects beautiful”
The wide variety and characters of Australian leathers have suggested their own particular form and character to me. My designs seek to explore and enhance these qualities. I gain inspiration for my leather work by interpreting what the character of the leather suggests to me by its weight, grain, colour or finishing.
Much of my original inspiration for design was stimulated by looking back to the form and detail of classic, antique, functional and fashion styles. I see good leathercraft as standing, on its own as a decorative object as well as being functional.
