Three part folding screen

About this project

I am fascinated with the technique of applying silver leaf onto leather. There are a few examples of walls covered in lacquered silver leaf in a few country houses around the UK made in the 16th Century.
I designed my screen from drawings of my favorite kitchen implements. Many of which are made by some of my favorite craftswomen.
The screen is made of vegetable tanned hide and silver leaf over a softwood frame.
