The shoe I chose is old and rugged, and the colors of the shoe are faded, so I thought it will interesting to sculpt a really old shoe and show the rugged feeling by manipulating the wire in different ways
I had the shoe for a really long time, and I used it for mainly skating, and messy adventures, so I see that it reflects my activates in my community.
I tried to show the rips in my shoe with the thinner wire along the seamline. The thicker wire is for the main contour lines, and folds.
The shoe is pretty flat so I tried to show value by exaggerating the folds
I’ll try to make the sculpture using only one long wire. It will be intersingg to see a wire sculpture of an old shoe like that, but it requires a lot of studies and time.
