Vagina Slipper Series

Although I haven't been posting as much as I know I should, I have been working on a new body of work. I call it the Vagina Slipper series. I know I've posted before on this so really this is a status update and this is probably a  working title... show title to be determined when the series is done and the artist statement is written.

Basically this body of work explores the concepts of fetishes, women as property and the sexualization of women in the fashion industry (I'm now learning more toward the latter but my research isn't close to being finished...) . The following images include works in progress and the first set of completed shoes!

(work in progress)

 This one was based off a drawing I did verses a real sandle, its on its way to be bisque fired - not sure of the title or how I'm going to glaze it (yet)

 This design grew out of the one below it, as I was making the first pair when I was bring the toe of the shoe together it created this beautiful 'V' at the top and so I thought I'd incorporate it into the design o the next pair of shoes. This one I'm calling Black Velvet and will glaze it with a cone 10 Black satin glaze which I will then wipe out of the inside and brush in a Koryo blue glaze which has a glossy finish verses the black satin that has more of a matte finish that reminds me of black velvet.
