Bas-relief is a method of sculpting which entails carving or etching away the surface of a flat piece of stone or metal. The word is derived from the Italian basso rilievo, the literal translation meaning “low contrast” as opposed to “alto rilievo” (”high contrast”). To explain simply, it is a sculpture portrayed as a picture. The portrayed image is raised above the background flat surface.
Now that you know the actual definition, you will notice that I titled this in Leather. Well thats because we found someone local that does this exact thing in leather, and sells what he makes. Take a look at his website, and see for your self the amazing things that he has created.
Let him know that you found him via this site, if you decide to purchase anything. That way, he knows that his friends are helping.
