from my Floral series, a range embracing motifs of pastel coloured flower patterns against either a pale creamy or a dark coloured background. Scandinavian for ‘small blue flower’ the name reflects the impressed flower pattern which contrasts with the deep velvety burgundy satin glaze. 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 using all manner of lace, ribbon and flowers. The shoes have the Louis heel, spayed at the base and waisted. The blue of the flowers is picked up in the bows and platinum beads edge the gently curving lines of braid along the top.
