Great Gray Owl Crossbody Purse - Bird Whisperer Project
This purse is hand-tooled with a Great Grey Owl as part of the Bird Whisperer Project. Each month a new bird is selected and artists of all mediums created a finished piece based on a single referenced image. I added a traditional Sheridan style carving to go along with the image of the largest owl in north america. The body has been dyed Charlie's Brown and has had an antique stain applied to highlight details in the tooling.
