Candice Lau is an award winning master leatherworker and a sculptor. Leather has always been core to her practice and her experience with the craft has attracted commissions from clients including Toast, Bang and Olufsen, Heals, Lacoste and Hermes.

Yet her latest work sees a true transformation of her creative thinking. Leather takes on a whole new role as a tool rather than a finished product, and aids the creation of dynamic sculptural works of art, altogether reinventing her creative practice.
