Gestures, Scene III

 

Gestures, Scene III continues to study the relationship between material, tools and the virtuosic skill of the maker.

From the leather pieces created in Scene II, a ritual of preparation begins, in anticipation of the next stage being brought into focus; the artistry of hand sewing. An elemental quality is brought into light through time honoured skills passed down over generations. Fire and water are utilised alongside specialist hand tools to manipulate the leather, whilst expert technique in intricate hand sewing begins to reveal an object of ultimate refinement.
