Hawk Studio was very busy in December and produced some really nice pieces. I just wanted to post some of them because I am very proud of the work Chip does.
Briefcases take alot of time and thought as each one is custom made to meet the vision of the eventual owner, with a little guidance from Chip. Often times folks will look at a briefcase he had made for someone else and then customize that design to match their needs.
In December Chip finished and shipped three briefcases and a pocketbook. The first one was based off of my briefcase and then alot of additional outer pockets were added.
It has a full back pocket with a magnetic closure on the flap
and these awesome trigger clip side pockets
The second briefcase is similar but with a cross-stitch feature in the front.
This one had the open full size back pocket with an additional closed pouch pocket.
The third briefcase is of another rough edge briefcase with the double buckle closures. This was the only picture I had of this brief. When I asked Chip where the other pictures were of this brief case he told me they were on the Hawk Studio Facebook page so if you would like to see more of this one, check out the Hawk Studio page on Facebook. That is where alot of Chip’s work is first posted with “in process” photos also. If you like his work, please “Like” his page. It always helps if he gets more people to “Like” his work. 🙂
The pocketbook actually came with us to Faire this year while it was in process. A customer saw it there and talked to Chip about how she would like it finished and here is her final bag. I really liked the size on this one – it was smaller than a field bag but still a large and roomy bag to carry all your things in. Glad it too has found its home.
I really liked the side loops on this one.
Chip did alot of knife cases in December too – which I presume must have made their way onto the Facebook page since they were not in the camera when I was downloading pictures.
I really hope you like seeing his work. I am so proud of the work he puts into each piece and I love showing it off – which is a good thing since I am the one who does most of the selling in the booth. He is working on a messenger bag now that will go out this month. Things got a little delayed with the holidays and then getting everything ready to put the refrigerator in, but I think he is getting back on track. I will try to get some of the in process shots on that one too.
So today’s bonus pic is of my other Irish twin. After Jesse turned 13 the boys had about two weeks of being the same age before Markus regained the lead and turned 14.
He’s almost four inches taller than me already. I’m so not ready for this.
Onward and Upward. . . . .
