Artist Statement

Mahroz Mirzahekmati

It's inspired by form, textile and the colours that maker used in creating this beautiful 18 century shoes. I designed this ring in a form to indirectly reflect the curve of the heals, over lap latchets and pointed-up turn toe. I also created different textures on both side as well as inside of the ring. and filled them with enamel to reflect the textile of the shoes.
