‘Marjories first shoes’

Pate de verre, found object

Date: 2012

Dimensions: installation piece- dimensions vary

This piece consists of 5 pairs of solid cast babies shoes.

The original shoes are from Victorian times and were purchased on ebay. I decided to display the originals with the glass ones whilst they sat together in my studio one day. As I cleaned them up I removed the tissue paper from the inside of them and found a small handwritten note. It read ‘Marjories first shoes gotten for her when she was a year old’ -hence the title of the piece.
