Your Final Challenge
Materials & ProcessesYour sculptural shoes may be constructed using any material or combination of the materials explored in Sculpture I, as well as any other materials, processes and ideas you may bring into class or research on your own. The basis of your sculpture should either start with a shoe and turn it into something other than a shoe, OR look like a shoe created using alternative materials.
