Stepping into the creative process

 

Every new project for me means new excitement. Even if it's a motif or an item I have already done before it is still always a new task and a fresh start all over again. Pretty often it is that I have to design a project completely new to fit the customer's ideas and desire. My customers can always rest assured that I will come up with neat solutions, be it that their idea can't be processed in a way that would leave them and also me as a crafter satisfied. For me, a professional advice for my customers is always essential. Sometimes they just give me some basic benchmark data of their idea and leave the design completely up to me. This is always a highly appreciated vote of confidence for me.

From idea to project

 

In order to realize an idea for a project, I usually make my own patterns and stencils. This creative process starts with a project idea that comes to my mind spontaneously or out of a simple need.

Pretty often it is also the input and desire of my customers that I bring to realization. I start with drawing sketches to visualize the idea first. Then I develop the patterns for the items and the stencils for the motifs I would like to tool into the leather.

Proper tools for a

professional look

 

It's very important for me to create my work process in a way that provides a good basis for the further processing of an item. When cutting the leather after I have transferred all the patterns, I pay much attention on sharp cutting knives and other tools that produce clean edges.

It's my unalterable belief that a proper trimming of leather edges by using the right tools and finishes is essential for a decorative and professional impression. I involve quite some time to produce this neat look.

Leather tooling
my meditiation

 

Leather tooling for me is a high art and something really special. I love the artistic approach of bringing motifs onto a maiden piece of leather and create a most three dimensional clean picture that looks as real as possible.

When doing so, I imagine a real object, hights, depths, shadings, all the dimensions. I must know and select my tools that I am going to use to create this effect on the leather piece. For me this whole process feels like meditation and I always find myself completely involved in it. It's just me, my tools and a piece of fine leather. I am loving this process.
