S: Feets of Clay

BC: Each shoe is individually made from clay using the handbuilding method and then raku fired. They are approximately the size of a woman's size 6 shoe. | Feets of Clay | Originally from Virginia, JoAnne Bedient now lives and works in beautiful south Florida. Bold color and whimsy describe her handbuilt, raku fired clay work. She works in series with shoes being her largest and longest running of those. "There are shoes for every activity and occasion in our lives, so why not transform our activities and occasions into shoes? When one of my daughters bought a pair of 1970's red patent leather shoes from a vintage clothing store in the late 1990's, I became fascinated with those little sculptures, and then the fun began! I started with realistic shoes, researched shoes throughout history, and finally settled into the whimsical designs that have become my signature," says Bedient. A quote from Picasso has been a continuing motivation for this series, "Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life". Her shoes definitely do not wear the dust of everyday life...hopefully what you are left wearing is a smile. | by JoAnne Bedient
