Maple wood, nylon washers, connector bolts, dowel
My response to an assignment to make a shoebox. I felt that there was no sense in making something that contains, protects, and displays something that already does those things regularly. If an object's identity is in its use, then the only way to honor it is by promoting its use, giving it new use, or using it. This is a container that continues to "use" a pair of shoes that I do not wear so often anymore.
