Shooter’s Bag by Shelly Gier & Kerry MasarikKatie Horn
Shelly Gier and Kerry Masarik collaborated on a unique shooter’s bag that’s based on a frontier original. Gier’s contemporary version is functional and eye-catching. It’s made from vegetable tanned leather and has beautifully contrasting layers of color and a nicely burnished finish. Gier’s leatherwork is complemented by Masarik’s custom fabric, which lines the pouch’s flap and was used on the strap as well. For this project, Masarik produced a wool fabric with a striking pattern, which was made by hand printing with leaves from the forests of North Carolina. Masarik’s botanical printed fabric was also used to make a small matching tool pouch that accompanies the bag.
