The inspiration for this piece came from a radio program I heard one day about how old fashioned letter writing with paper, envelopes and stamps was making a come back as a pandemic pastime.
Leather was chosen as a material for the writing surface as it offers the perfect combination of cush and resistance. The wood is wavy Western Maple that came from a wind fall near Lake Cowichan.
