LaughingBear Works Leather Products
LaughingBear Works Leather Products are the result of experimentation influenced by inspiration. The ideas just keep coming, and as the ideas come so must Laughing Bear. From Laughing Bear:
"Leather was never something I considered. Growing up in middle class America, we wore cottons and denims and corduroy. The thought of actually wearing leather never occurred to us. However, as I began to explore the immense variety that is part of my heritage, I learned that leather comes in many forms. The simple beauty of a piece of deer or elk rawhide, the grace of a piece of buckskin, when seen through my new eyes, astounds me. I have learned that these are gifts, from the animals to the humans. Once given to us to provide our homes, our shelter, our tools, our food and our clothing, the beings are part of us as we are part of them. We're all made of the same "stuff". Together, living in harmony, we once shared this great land. Now, I have been charged with accepting these same gifts and creating things that help all people remember our brothers and sisters of the animal world."
LaughingBear's technical background comes in part as a result of his ability to perceive and appreciate artistic beauty. How does that work? While he will tell you that he is not an "artist", he can use his computer skills to emulate artistry. By utilizing the technology that is available today, he can take the inspirations of Creator and create works that are unique.
