EirewolfCreations's Profile Picture

Erin Metcalf
Artist
United States
My name is Erin "Eirewolf" Metcalf, and I'm a leatherworker and sculptor living in Silicon Valley, California. I sculpted fantasy creatures (especially dragons and Dragon Snails™) in clay for several years (most of which can be found here in my deviantART gallery). More recently I discovered leather maskmaking, and fell in love with leather as a sculpting medium.

I call my aesthetic "whimsical realism." I enjoy the process of designing animals and fantasy creatures as masks, and then carving the designs into vegetable-tanned leather. I then sculpt the masks using a wet-forming technique, and dye and paint them. There are many steps in the process, all of which I do by hand with an eye for detail and craftsmanship. The resulting masks are unique works of art that you can be proud to hang on the wall when you're not wearing them.

I am constantly learning more about leather crafting; the possibilities of things one can create with leather are nearly endless. I am branching out from maskmaking into leather eye patches, jewelry, and other accessories as well, so be on the lookout for them!

Interests
Gear up for the resistance! These 1-inch wide leather bracelets have the word RESIST in capital letters burned into the leather by hand with a pyrography tool. Snap closure. Leather jewelry is tough and stands the test of time… and so will the Resistance.

For each RESIST bracelet sold, I will donate $10 to a nonprofit resistance organization. See my website at the link below for details.

The RESIST bracelets are available for purchase here: eirewolfcreations.com/collecti…  <---


Also, for the month of July 2018, I am donating 20% of ALL sales from my website to RAICES Texas (the largest immigration legal services non-profit in TX, focusing on under-served immigrant children, families and refugees).

I would like to thank you for making (and giving permission to use) the dragon snails. You are an amazing artist! The Dragon Snails and my favorite SCP. 

P.S. Shame on the person who took your image without permission.

P.S.S. You will forever be apart of SCP history.
