hand knit leather, precious materials

statement

I was born and raised in the middle of the United States, and I choose to remain where generations have worked and planted and harvested.  A desire for connection lead me to knitting.  My mother is an avid knitter.  I wanted to sit, observe and learn from her.  Pattern, rhythm, order, contrast, two simple stitches create fabric; divisions of land become visible through the quiet act of forming a knit and purl stitch in fine leather. Forged and fabricated traditional goldsmithing processes and precious materials are integral to my practice as a maker.  Luxury of freedom and vast space characterizes us to the rest of the world. Using perceived materials of luxury, I question the affluence of abundance through the fabric of our landscape.

Hello Brooke -

Welcome to crafthaus, the network for craft artists, craft organizations, and those who support them! I am very glad you joined us! Your crafthaus membership is valid through October 15, 2017.

Please look around, add your thoughts to the groups, blogs and discussions and post images and video. Crafthaus is a participatory sport so don't hold back. We truly welcome your thoughts, blogs, discussions and comments at any time. This is the point of crafthaus!

Please note that ALL images sent to the website are vetted to assure a measure of overall quality control. Unlike other image sharing websites, crafthaus is not a "free-for-all". Our members present their work in front of an educated and critical audience so the photos have to be GREAT. Our goal is to show our members' work in the best possible light. From the many images received daily, we aim to post as many as possible. Crafthaus heartily encourages comments from the membership, however, with regard to photos posted or not, we have a strict "NO WHINING" policy in effect! If your images don't get posted they do not meet crafthaus quality standards. Please refer to the photo guidelines under the FAQ tab for questions.

If there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me via crafthauseditor at live dot com, I will do my best to be of help. I hope you will enjoy being with this network, and will find the exchanges interesting and fun. If you have some time, please take a look at this document, it provides background info about our network and can help to get you off to a good start.

Again: Welcome !
Brigitte Martin
