Pier Mario Mureddu
Since he was a child, Pier Mario Mureddu has been spending time at his uncle's cobbler's shop and, as a teenager, he began his apprenticeship. After learning the craft techniques of leather processing, he opened a workshop of his, starting his professional career. As he gained experience, he developed distinctive and personal skills making objects inspired by local tradition, carefully crafted, with great skill and passion, using precious natural materials, such as leather, bones and wood.
Crafting techniques, ranging from intaglio to engraving, are performed entirely by hand with the aid of specific tools at his laboratory. For the processing of leather masks, the craftsman uses moulding procedures on dedicated wooden casts.
