“I pick the flowers of the soul… therefore sometimes my hands get dirty.” – Aoi Kotsuhiroi
Total brilliance, these are intense! While her latest collection, “Exotic Regrets“, is still in progress, images of one pair of included shoes (”feet objects”) were recently released on her site. Called “Dawn Ritual”, the one-of-a-kind platforms are composed of urushi-lacquered horns, which serve as the heels, urushi-lacquered cherry tree wood and leather (tame ingredients, considering the source)—and are among Kotsuhiroi’s most stunning sculptures to date.
Make sure to check out Kotsuhiroi‘s site for more info and images.
