Jelly Shoes were the inspiration for an up-coming exhibition.
They were featured in a perfectly formed circle made up of the footwear. The exhibit was at the Northampton Museum and Art Gallery February 9 and until April 21. It is the work of sculptor Tom Hackett from Nottingham who was inspired to make the colourful piece after finding an abandoned child’s silicone sandal near a lake in France.
Tom then got out his tools and hand-made every shoe used in the extraordinary design. Northampton is a town famous for its shoe-making heritage. They loved what Tom had done with the jelly sandals.
ynuk.tv went to talk to Tom about his work and found him in a shed at the end of his garden where he keeps his tools for making artist pieces and where he made the shoes
