Happy impending Halloween, everybody!  I'm working on my costume already... Are you?  :-)  I'm going to be a Plague Doctor; I'm working on the mask for it which will be the most complicated mask I've made thus far.  It's coming along nicely.

If YOU are in need of a high-quality, unique, handmade mask, I hope you will check out my shop!  It doesn't have any Plague Doctors, but it does have rabbits, wolves, kitty cats, dragons, ravens, foxes, owls.... There's even a Red Panda.... Oh, and pirate eye patches!  Aaaaarrr, mateys!  Sail on over there and take a look:  http://eirewolf.artfire.com

I'm finally getting around to uploading some of my newer masks -- dragons, wolves, butterflies, assassins, and tabby cats.  Quite an eclectic mix.  :-)

General Help  - 
 
Today when I came to update my settings, I noticed that ALL my data is gone except for my profile photo.  I had dozens of photos, posts, lots of people in several different circles... ALL GONE.  (Today I posted some stuff on the About page.)  What happened, and how do I get my data back?  Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

+erin metcalf It might be easier to try to sort things out if you provided the links that were provided in the email and the URLs to what you consider to be the proper profile and pages.

Happy Mardi Gras, everyone! Even if you missed the festivities, you can pretend you didn't, and have your own masquerade.... :-) I hope you enjoy this fierce Great Horned Owl.

+Eric Steiner Thank you so much! The Great Horned Owl would not be the same without his "feathers." :-)

Here's another mask that I listed today! This one is a little subtler than the dragon. It is a rich reddish-brown simple half-mask with a bronze-colored trinity knot (or triquetra) symbol on the forehead. It's available in my Artfire shop: eirewolf.artfire.com

I may or may not have just spent ALL EVENING on Pinterest.... I just started there, and it is severely addicting to someone (like me) who collects images for inspiration and soul-food.

Story
Tagline
Maskmaker, leatherworker, sculptress of fantasy creatures, AKA Eirewolf
Introduction
My name is Erin "Eirewolf" Metcalf, and I'm a leatherworker, maskmaker, and sculptor living in the Bay area in California.  My business, Eirewolf Creations, is a one-woman artisan studio offering handmade leather masquerade masks, pirate eye patches, and other accessories.  Shop here or visit my gallery website here.  I welcome commission inquiries (but please check the shop first to get an idea for baseline prices and to see if I have something you like already available).  Thanks for visiting!

Eirewolf's Artist Statement

The world of fantasy has captured my imagination since I was old enough to pick up a crayon.  There is something inherently wonderful about impossible creatures springing to life in one's imagination -- it is like standing alongside God during the creation of the world and saying, "Let's make this!  Oh, and let's give it wings!"

As I approached adulthood, I learned that society believes such things to be impractical, that I should spend my energy on more pragmatic pursuits.  But so much is lost when we let go of childhood, of myths, of fairy tales, of the impossible and the improbable.  Through my fantasy art I fight against the squelching of creative imagination, and rebel against society's doctrine that everything important must be pragmatic. 

I strive for whimsical realism in each piece I create, toeing the line between imagination and reality, stretching the boundaries of pragmatism and possibility.  My works invite the viewer (or the wearer) to rediscover lost pieces of their childhood flights of fantasy.
