notes from the desk of Lord Ihone Munro

About Ihone

I know what you're thinking.

"Who the hell is this guy that keeps blathering on about this, that and the other?"

Ok, well maybe not, but I realize that there are a lot of folks that might not know me by name. I don't mind that so much, I'd rather you know me by face, or better yet - by my work.

My mundane friends know me as Glenn Miller - a web developer and geek extrordinaire just outside of Charlotte, NC. I also make bags, dog collars and miscellaneous weird stuff on the side. I've been making things out of leather since I was a kid, a by-product of being heavily involved in Boy Scouting. At summer camp at a young age, I would often times park myself at either the archery range or the craft lodge. While my artistic interests have varied dramatically through the years, I'm probably best known for making stuff from either leather or wood.

My wife and I also combined forces to form RavenMadd Leather a couple years ago.

In the SCAdian world though, I am known better as Lord Ihone Munro, or just Ian. I'm a founding member of The Corsairium, a guild in Atlantia devoted to education in the nautical life in period. I'm also known to participate in archery and rapier, as well as thrown weapons with my kids. Where my interests in activities within the SCA are varied though, you are most likely to find me hanging out with the other artisans within the society - or find my work on the display tables at events around the Sacred Stone area. I very much enjoy the competitions, they force me to think outside of the normal wheel house that my brain dwells in. I began an apprenticeship with Mistress Etain of Sutherland in 2014, and have been having an absolute blast since.

If you happen across me at an event, please do swing by! I love talking about art and methods, and would love to hear what you think!

Constructive feedback is both welcome and appreciated, please let me know if I missed some pertinent information or if there's somewhere I can improve. As always, thanks for reading!
