The idea behind this piece started when a friend moved into a house that had been owned by a shoe maker. The attic was full of wooden shoe lasts of various shapes and sizes. I choose to work with some of the wooden lasts, whose owners had had obvious deformities to their feet. The beautiful old shoe suitcase was found on ebay.
