Artist Dan Groussman builds his leather creations in the same manner objects we now admire as treasured antiques were once made. Each work is constructed entirely by hand, using only some simple hand tools and finger thimbles. His creations celebrate a time when things were built well, from the best materials – made with love and deliberation – and intended to last a lifetime.
