The idea of using shoes in these pieces was purely because I wanted a cheap source material to create the skin of the monkeys faces. As I took the shoes apart I became more interested in the textures and markings and the way in which the shoe had been made particularly the bespoke shoe. I decided to incorporate some of craftsman materials and workmanship into the finish piece.
