Lost and Found

For as long as I can remember, I spent my whole life searching and finding objects and re-purposing them. It all started when I was little, discovering old bike parts and old silverware and making wind chimes from those items for my mom and her friends. When in college, I had the opportunity to go to Greece and while I was there, I found real, authentic, hand-done sandals.

Of course, I kept them. I wore them all throughout Europe the entire summer. I finally wore them out and when I thought they no longer had life, I had an idea. I took them apart, brought them to a local shoe repair,  and asked the worker to help me put them back together. He showed me how and immediately sparked my interest in leather making. After college, I started working with a group of guys purchasing old buildings that were falling down, in interesting areas, but needed to be rebuilt and redeveloped in order to bring a new breathe of life in them.

These adventures reminded me of when I was a child, we even called these hunting trips, field trips. They were beautiful buildings, just going through hard times, so it was up to us to recycle them. After 15 years, this started to spur my creative juices to find and reclaim other items, and from my experience in Greece, leather was the obvious medium of choice. Lost and found represents various items, treasures and inspirational pieces that, to me, are worth reclaiming.
