A lei from the welcome mat

In my hometown on Darwin, it is customary for everyone to remove shoes when entering a house. Often the welcome mat is circled, almost lei like, with an eclectic collection of footwear – the most frequent of course being the thong.

While making this piece, I was also thinking about the old saying ‘to walk a mile in another’s shoes. The thinking I have for this Lei is to welcome with empathy.

Materials: Faceted segments hand cut from used thongs, silk thread, sterling silver + patina

Dimensions: 450mm x 130mm x 25mm
