Great Green Shoe Art
Alice at Aluminous Publishing likes Ruby Re-Usable’s masks made from plastic milk jugs; check out Aluminous Publishing’s list of other interesting Recycled Art and Artists.
Gaza Bowen is an artist who created sculptural shoes (some from recycled materials, like the pair on the right that were in the Hello Again exhibit) as well as functional shoes; read more about her work HERE.
Great Green Shoes is a shopping blog devoted to animal free shoes suitable for vegans, vegetarians and everyone who prefers a quality alternative to leather. Shoes bridge all cultures – this is a way to teach about cultures – a way to teach the stories: shoe art lesson ideas.
Jacqueline over on Wild Ink sees shoes hanging from utility lines and wonders what the story is (so do we!). See her post with a pic of shoes on a wire HERE. Then leave a comment and tell Olympia Dumpster Divers what shoes mean to you (send your shoe sayings, too). And don’t forget to check out Diane Kurzyna’s new installation of shoes.
I wrote a poem about shoes on my Alter Ego blog at: http://foundcraftygreenart.blogspot.com/2006/07/shoes.html
I like the idea of using shoes to learn about different cultures. Plus any guide to buying green shoes is a great idea…
THANK YOU for sharing your poem about shoes! I think I will collect poems about shoes, and post them, along with other thoughts about shoes, the next time I do something about shoes.
