Trying to find a soft place to land. A way to reach from one side of myself to the other. Searching for balance.

Desert air cleanses the heart and the mind. The land is rich. Hidden life finds a way to thrive.
Working with my hands alongside other women, the wind blowing through all of our hair and ropes.

The room softly echoes the silent hooves of beasts pacing the tundra while dreaming of tropical beaches. Great plumes of steam rise from their breath, crystals condense on their muzzles.
With contemplation for continued connection, continued growth, and ever-expanding love and acceptance. Looking forward with hope.

These two pieces are a wonderful commission for Saddlemans - purveyors of premier hides. They wanted striking, large-as-life pieces, showcasing their inherent beauty. We wanted to treat each hide with deep respect and create an environment of art and beauty to surround it.
Furniture designer (and my partner at Post and Gleam) Trevor Pearson and I approached the project as a play on opposites; light or dark, soft or hard, languid or taut, feminine or masculine.
Trevor created the white frame by powder-coating six inch aluminum channel secured with custom matching brackets and large visible bolt heads. I wanted to create stunning macramé ropes that would be not just visually pleasing, but fully functional as well. These knotted ropes stretch and secure the hide within the frame, keeping the spirit and integrity of traditional practices close at hand.

The second of two pieces from a commission for Saddlemans - purveyors of premier hides.
The black steel frame was acid-etched for richness of tone on the wide, four inch steel channel. Meant to be hung in the center of a room, this piece was created to be two-sided, with a different stunning hide visible from each point of view.
Delicate to the eye, but strong and steady, airplane grade braided steel cable was utilized along with the traditional tanning clamps to create a pleasing symmetry.
