Jennifer Harrison, Artist
been making leather masks since 1997. I evolved the process through trial
and error. The first task was how to make a mask out of leather that would
comfortably fit the face. Then I had to figure out how to shape the eyeholes
with a rolled edge. Then I started finding better ways to paint them. Now
I'm working on tooling pieces to add depth and texture. There's always something
new to learn -
I think that when I'm 105, I might finally have this figured out.
I enjoy learning, and I hope I've brought some new ideas to the process.
I'm working on a syllabus for teaching how leather masks are made so that I can give workshops. This will include some basic designs for making some of my masks, as well as a how-to for designing your own patterns. If you're interested in having me in your area, drop me a line.
