Tamara Clammer's Profile

About

I began working with leather in 2004 with my young son. We started out making hand sewn items from oil tanned leather. After making holiday gifts for all our family members that year, I started selling hand sewn bags at a local boutique. As my bags evolved, so did my interests.

In 2006 I found myself in a blacksmithing course to make a custom handle for my best friend's Tim Burton inspired birthday gift, and somewhere along the way I began making knife sheaths. This lasted long enough for me to become comfortable with vegetable tanned leather, and a series of seemingly random events led me to creating my first mask.

Making high quality leather cases is rewarding; making creatures with their own personalities, however, is addictive. First they took over my living room, and then they took over my life : )
