Designer Profile: Kara Ginther Custom Leather Work

February 5, 2010

Since my wedding planning is lacking a wedding planner, I was sure to budget for gifts to give to everyone who ends up helping Joe and I pull off our wedding.  Recently I was brainstorming about what kind of gifts I could give that would be useful, beautiful and unique. I am hoping to commission some projects from Madison artist Kara Ginther.  Kara does amazing custom leather work- carving and painting a variety of objects.

Kara is a thoughtful designer, drawing much of her inspiration from the Midwest itself.  She has done custom work on found items such as bags, shoes and belts but has recently gotten a lot of press for her work on Brooks saddles.  She has also launched an Etsy shop where she takes commissions for custom work and also has beautiful items for sale.  We’re brainstorming ideas right now, more images later when we make decisions.

Read an interview with Kara from To Be Inspired.
