09_web.gif (80094 bytes) Merlin Mask This is a one of a kind piece. 

I never know what is going to speak to me that wants to be used in each creation.   In this case I used thin irregular slices of Eastern Red Cedar for the background color. The frame was made from rough lumber and recycled glass.

I call this wall hanging "Merlin Mask" because of the colors and I have a the  leather Merlin Tail Feather I make tied into the hair.

 I sculptured the mask from tooling leather.

This is a sample of a Decorated 10" Bald Eagle Tail with traditional wrapping on the quill. 
Each piece I make is unique. 
 I may have an idea how I want it, but I never know exactly how a piece is going  to be completed for it is created  through me, not by me.

The Antler handle is sculptured from layers of tooling leather bonded together.

Custom Mask with Immature Golden Eagle Feathers on a cedar base.

I had gotten the Honorable Mention Award at a Pow-Wow Craft Completion.

I felt very honored to receive this award as I was competing with a renown Native American Silversmith who had entered an exquisite, massive Squash Blossom Necklace.

 

I am a Viet Nam Era Veteran.

In 2004 I entered the Department of Veterans Affairs Creative Arts Festival for the fun of it, and to help by having a different type of art shown at the Festival.

I was pleasantly surprised to have placed high enough at the local and state level to go to National.    I felt so honored to have been awarded   the  Second Place Award when competing against all the Vets in the United States.

Over the years I have constantly felt so much gratitude for the Leather Crafters who taught me to paint the leaves and feathers.
