Heel shoe

Tal Weinreb

Part of the graduation project ‘Hang it’, 2013.

In this project I present two pairs of shoes hanging on the wall. My inspiration for finding storage methods came from observing ‘the shakers’ storing techniques that hang their unused furniture on the walls. The advance manufacture techniques used are opposing the simple, basic and formal language of materials coming from ‘the shakers’ world. The shoes are hanging on the wall in segments. Taking the parts down, assembling and closing the model makes the whole. Mentored by Eliora Lemmer Ginsburg.

Material: walnut wood, gold coated brass and silver

Technique: CNC, welding, filling, 3D print, casting
