In the early spring of 1974, I started doing " Leather Burnings ". This are images burnt into the leather using what is commonly called wood burning tools or an electric pen. These two are after a Remmington pen and ink, and are done on mule deer skins. The hoops I made from popular, and are 5 ft. in diameter by 6 in. by 1/2 in. The lower picture is me lacing the hide into the hoop, and is inverted to show the image. These two pieces are in south Texas, on either side of a fireplace in a private collection.
