The examples on the following pages are by Dan Wenger of California. He utilizes simple, sturdy frames of steel painted flat black, burnished to a high luster and coated with polyurethane. The slings may be cowhide, red latigo, or suede laminated to both sides of 12-ounce red latigo, and more than one sling scan be made so they are changeable. The steel gives a springiness to the design and the leather sling permits a gentle rhythmic motion and a shape that conforms to the user's body.
