M Herzing's Profile
I have always enjoyed theater and the drama of masks. I enjoy shaping leather masks by hand because of the infinite variety of shapes they can take. I am inspired by the natural world and by the texture inherent in the fiber of the leather, itself.
Each of my masks are designed for maximum action and long-wearing comfort. I usually leave the nose and mouth uncovered, allowing wearers to talk, drink, eat, and kiss.
I respect the leather as a resource and try to incur as little waste as possible, which leads to some rather unique shapes.
I hope you enjoy my masks and thank you for your interest.
