Abstract

This project has explored the use of leather as a nonfunctional sculptural medium. The sculptures in this project had their design and construction roots in the historical use of leather for clothing, shelter, tools, and protection. The scultpures differed from leather objects in the past by being solely involved with the aesthetic possibilities of leather and curvilinear relationships, hard and soft oppositions, and surface decoration.There were four sculptures in this project. Each sculpture was built entirely of leather. There were no metal or wood armatures. The construction and the end results of these sculptures depended entirely on the various shaping properties of leather.
