King's Saddlery and Museum in Sheridan, Wyoming.
The King family saddlery legacy began with Don King in 1946. Don coined the Sheridan flower style of leather carving, a detailed and intricate art that helped put King's Saddlery on the map. Today, the Sheridan style has influenced leather workers all over the world. In the late 1960s, ropes were added to the Kings' repertoire, and the family became world-renowned for those, too. "It's not a very complicated process but it is kind of an artistic process," says Ryan King, a third-generation saddler.
Ryan, like his grandfather, is drawn to the idea of doing something different with his craft. Just as Grandpa Don made his mark with Sheridan carving, Ryan has started working with pottery and tapping into his leather tooling skills to create a new generation of one-of-a-kind artworks. He credits Wyoming's landscape for his inspiration. "Wyoming allows you to do whatever you want to do. There is a lot of inspiration around here. Everywhere you look. Wide open spaces, gorgeous mountains, tons of wildlife. It's awe-inspiring. You don't find that kind of stuff in the city. It allows you to get back to nature and get in with the raw elements."
