Calfskin and Cedar: La Boheme

This is the first in a series of wood based pieces that I'm working on. This case (sized to fit an iPad perfectly) is a nice lightweight Calfskin, burnished in a rich British Tan, with a Hunter green interior inscribed with calligraphy. The Hardware is hand carved from lightweight old growth Red Cedar affixed with Brass Pins and rivets. Hand sewn. Totally one of a kind. soon to be available at Barking Lizards Gallery in Williamsburg Brooklyn.

French Polished Cedar Base attached with brass escutcheon pins:


The interior was inscribed with text from Puccini's Opera La Boheme
