Unique scuplture, part of the series ‘everyday items’, delicately embroidered in artquilt technique from felt and various materials, 2019.

Inspired by the famous Dr. Martens shoe, an English footwear brand. These boots have been the choice of footwear among various groups in British culture: in the 1960s skinheads started to wear ‘Docs’ and by the late 1980s, they were popular among scooter riders, punks, goths, new wave musicians, and members of other youth subcultures, most notably the grunge fashion scene in the early 1990s.
