“A snap shot of intricate handmade paper shoes…featuring sparkling, multi-coloured stiletto & other unique works by the French artist.”
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I’d like to give thanks for all my blessings as well as for SHOES! I’M SO THANKFUL for shoes!! I love shoes! Anyway, seeing as it’s probably gonna be raining all weekend, make sure you check out the Thierry Agnone Paper Sculptures exhibition at the Bata Shoe museum AFTER you check out the Petite Feet Sample Sale!
“Lately I have only worked on women’s shoes made from paper. This is not because paper is an affordable medium, but instead to underline the fragility and lightness of women’s shoes. I want to convey the message that shoes are not only a utilitarian object but also a symbolic one. Faily tales, princes stories and magic lands.” –Thierry Agnone
FYI: The Bata Shoe Museum houses a collection of over 10,000 modern and historical shoes! Access to the Paper Sculptures exhibition is included in the museum’s regular admission price.
Happy Long Weekend!
