Moon turns the tide… gently away

Floor Hermes

Ruffled midcalf boots with clear vinyl inset panels and plexiglass heels, second year SASK, d’Academie Beeld Sint-Niklaas in Belgium, 2019.

Inspired by shells and sea spark. Hermes: ‘The sea gives me peace at high and low tide. Dominated by the gravitational pull of the moon, the sea casts out shells, in various forms, for billions of years. The sea spark, a luminous alga that can be seen around the solstice at the twilight of the evening, gives a special glow to the sea.’
