gut instinct

"The slick organic material of gut presents a real challenge since I use the shoe in my work as a metaphor for various aspects of life." Carol Durham

for a woman who prefers running around barefoot, i enjoyed the shoe posted yesterday enough to share another shoe story today. this fanciful pair were made with one of the earliest fiber media - animal intestines. yes, carol durham makes shoes from hog gut, embellishing them with scenes that often make a social commentary. wonder what this one says about us?

have a good weekend!
