“Shoe In” Sculptures by Gwen Murphy
Talk about feeling like someone is looking up your skirt. At first, these pedi-sculptures made me want to run. After walking around with them for a little while however, I can see how one might develop an addiction.
Artist Gwen Murphy wins this week’s prize for putting her best foot forward.
I like these shoes sculptures. Is it possible to buy for collection? If so, where?
Let me know.
Thrilled. Thank you.

Thanks for that, The Manner house of Salvatore Ferragamo is broadly believed to a person of the finest designer footwear retailers in the planet at the moment. Ferragamo sneakers are on par with with even goods from Jimmy Choo. Most that keep in contact with the vogue community would know this. But for those people that will not, here’s a brief rundown of the model. Salvatore Ferragamo, who was of Italian descent, was born on the June the 5th, 1898. He arrived from a notably substantial household comprised of 13 siblings and is the founder of the brand name. His passion for creating luxury sneakers started when he prepared his initial pair of sneakers for his sister’s confirmation ceremony at the age of 9.
well said! agreed.
I’m sure high end shoemakers work very hard to give their work personality. After all, they want their shoes to speak to the woman and call to the man considering them. Given the uniqueness, the character, the intimacy required it would seem all that’s missing are eyes, mouths and tongues.
Really, really creeping me out.
Agree, initially a little off-putting, but they grow on you!
Wow – I will never put my own shoes again without looking twice. Thanks for sharing these, they are quite cool!
This is truly someone with their “Foot up their Face!” I am always amazed at the creativity of your artist. Good Find!
Not sure I would want them on my wall, but love the creative idea!
that is clown-level creepy, but I do like the way each expresses it’s personality!
I am feeling less creative in comparison. Thanks for continuing to broaden my horizons. Hats off to Gwen Murphy!
These are very cool. Nice to see something a bit different. x
not sure how to follow your blog…love your fabric work
Her studio’s around the corner from mine, and I see her work at open studios every year. Always amazes me how she finds the personality that the shoe evokes and then expresses it in the faces.
This is so unusual, yet still attracting the eye… I’d say it’s hmm… horribly interesting.
