United: Graffiti Leather Cuffs
This Leather cuff is apart of the United Collection. This is a collection that has been created with the ideas of division, difference and the yearning to connect us. In this work I have been using scrap leather like unwanted skins and telephone wire to piece us together as one. Now more then ever we see ourselves divided, in the world, in our communities and in our friends and families.
These Graffiti cuffs were inspired also by graffiti on a train that travels right across Canada.
Made from leather, shock cord, telephone wire, silicone tubing and an interlocking magetic clasp for the closure. This cuff is 20.5cm in length (8 1/8") The width of the cuff is 5cm (2") The cuff with the orange telephone wire is .5cm shorter.
Both cuffs have a soft piece of leather in bright ultra violet that lines the inside.
