One piece at a time, so to speak

Says sculptor Finn Stone:

Seeking to keep alive the boldness and flare adopted from an earlier generation, I experiment with a rich mix of pigments and textures, exploring colour and form. With an impulsive lust for vibrancy, my beloved reds and yellows collide with unstoppable momentum.

LEG-GO Stilettos by Finn StoneThis particular project, I suggest, is indisputably bold, possibly even vibrant. Stone calls these LEG-GO Stilettos, likely a nod to the iconic Scandinavian construction system and to the trademark-infringement lawyers employed by its manufacturer, and they will be produced, says Design Milk, in an edition of twelve. If there are any left this fall, I’m guessing Byard Art, which represents Stone, might exhibit them at London’s Affordable Art Fair, the spring edition of which boasted no pieces over £4000. Historically, this would work out to about £3850 over my budget, but hey: it’s art, right?

    No one who has ever stepped on a Lego brick, barefoot, in the middle of the night, would want to think of them being on shoes.

    Which still leaves — what, 1.4 percent of the population?

    Fillyjonk’s comment was precisely what I thought when I saw those shoes. That and “ouch.”

    FJ: spot on!
    My first instinct was to cry out “ouch! and to check out the soles of my feet – in case some tiny torturous piece still stuck there from 15 years back, when my son spread them everywhere.

    Charles, I have no idea – I don’t even HAVE kids and I’ve had the experience of the midnight Legoing. (Little brother who loved the things. Well, I loved them too, but I was a bit better about picking them up, seeing as I was five years older…)
