About the Blog Title

Delicate Utility, is a phrase I have used to describe my work over the years. I utilize materials that are often considered to be utilitarian, and therefore not traditionally beautiful, and then I extract them from their predictable contexts and rework their 'use' by stitching, weaving and arranging them into 'beautiful' and often delicate garments. The title is also apt for all the leatherwork I do. I'm interested in how items from our daily life can be both beautiful and functional.
