Beak boots

Ulla-Stina Wikander

Embroidered beak (traditional Finnish) boots, 2016.

I cover ordinary household things from the 70s, like a sewing machine, vacuum cleaner, electric mixer etc. I find it interesting to see how these objects transforms in a new context; the obsolete, the things we do not want any longer, the old and forgotten things. I give them a second life and although I cut the embroideries into pieces, I still think they look very beautiful, when the objects has been ‘dressed up’.
