Dents & The Rabbit

Earlier this year when English glove maker Dents heard about the inclusion of several pairs of their vintage gloves in the Daphne's Glove project, they very kindly sent us some leather scraps for the artists use.
(We included a short video showing how a Dent's glove is made in an earlier post HERE.) 
In these photographs you can see how delightfully those scraps have been transformed by Karen Shapley into a bag and paws for her project piece - the Rabbit.
Thank you Dents - this has brought an element of both historic and contemporary British glove making into the project.
