Now that I am in Vancouver, Canada, I shall embark upon a drawing project.
First image done at the Museum of Anthropology.
drawing of “slaves”. These form the supports to a high seat ensemble carved from cedar wood.
Looking to remind myself of how I see.
After a few months of experimentation, calico trials, skill-development and training, I can now reveal the first prototype Leather Bag. This is incorporating a panel made in the Italian mask-making technique of wet moulded veg tan over a carved wooden former. I have learned such a lot from this and am now confident that I am on the right trajectory for the future of S.J. Mask-Maker and Bag-Man.
About 100 people visited our studio’s over the week-end.
An overview of Stephen Jon Mask-Maker, from theatre through fine art and craft. Looking back to move forwards. Leather is to be the future.
Final preparations being made for this coming week-end of Open Studios. 10am till 5pm on Saturday 13th May and Sunday14th May.
