Lionel Jadot, Leather Time, BE, 2020

The idea for Leather Time was a challenge to form a table in a single sheet of brass. The bright pink color was inspired by Malabar chewing gum giving its slight industrial feel a sense of whimsy. Scraps of full grain leather from reclained horse saddles were cut and stitched together in an imporvised shape. Gold leaf embossed monograms dot the seams of the leather. The principle of reclamation has been relevant to Jadot from a young age. As a child in his father’s workshop, Jadot developed a keen attraction and respect for materials, coveting the bits of scrap wood and leather that would accumulate around the floor and had been deemed “fair game.” Today this manifests as both a philosophical and aesthetic tenet to his work. Manipulating materials that have been salvaged permeates the works with a sense of character, history, and humanity
