Old Wooden Shoe Forms and StretchersJune 15th, 2015 in blog, member junk
When you come across an incredible find, don’t delay or think, "Do I really need this?” If you love it, buy it. When I found this collection of shoe stretchers and forms, I immediately envisioned the history behind each one. The craftsmen cutting leather, stitching seams, hammering nails and taking pride in the final creation. In my home I surround myself with objects that inspire and spark my imagination. My thoughts create a fictional history behind an object that ignite a design. That was the case when I created this assemblage of stretches, forms and old shoehorns. It’s like going back in time, grabbing things you want and love, and then creating your own interpretation of the past.
I recently found another collection of beautifully dilapidated objects. Look for it on JMS in a few weeks.
