The busy cobbler
The cobbler has been busy here at the studio. I was challenged to create an Asian style slipper influenced by the wonderful Sasha Puppen book. I crafted the hand sewn slipper from a very soft leather. The wedge heel was created from a cork material. It was sealed with a clear polish. The heel was then glued to the sole with a high quality glue made especially for cork. I really like the way they turned out. They will be on to their new owner this week.
