Thanks to SisterWolf, I just learned about Israeli born artist Sruli Recht. Sruli works out of his remotely located, (an abandoned fishery in the meat-packing district) drool-worthy, studio in a Reykjavik, Iceland. This youngster (born in '79) is motivated by obscure materials (horse hide, stillborn lamb skins, ram's blood for dying to name a few) and creating items you never knew you needed. . . but now can't live without. ie: A black diamond tipped pen for writing/etching on glass surfaces.

His item descriptions are one of my favorite aspects of his work.
For example:

Grey Nurse

type: boot
composition: all cow leather
heel: 2" raw leather cuban
colour ways: kelp green
gender: homme

ocean filtered light flickering over my eyes, steps that cut, and a very distant headache. low button up leaden boots, one piece of leather pleated into shape and soft leaning heel. just one tired sleek shark swimming through tomorrow

Preferred Use: Espionage and straight out traditional Mexican stand off
nothing more to say.

Who wouldn't want a pair of these after reading that?

Also, i respect a person who seems to be equally into the quality of their product's presentation. Those stacked cardboard ring and pen holders are works of art in themselves.

The images below are of his store The Armoury via Yatzer.com

I want the ring, but first I want him. I'm feeling an actual ache.
