 Lyra,

                       from my Night series, a range using black and white glazes together embracing both satin and glossy. Greek for ‘constellation in the night sky’, the name reflects the glossy smoothness of the black glaze with the pinpricks of starlight emphasised by the white speckles within it.  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. The shoes have the Louis heel, spayed at the base and waisted and have ornate gold tassels and elongated toes. Gold beads edge the top of the shoes which are decorated with impressed patterns of flowers and small hearts which were themes from this era.
