from my Night series, a range using black and white glazes together embracing both satin and glossy. Japanese for ‘Night Sky’, the name reflects the satin smoothness of the black glaze contrasting with the star-like flower pattern on the heel and toe. The shape of the shoes is very Rococo, a style of art and ornament associated with the excesses of French High Society and Louis XV reign. During this time trimmings on clothes and shoes were elaborate and costly. The shoes have the Louis heel, spayed at the base and waisted and have a cascade of creamy-white ruffles down the front topped by a bow. Beads of platinum interspersed with white edge the top of the shoe and gently curving lines of braid border platinum & mother-of-pearl bands on the heel and toe.
