Wooden Shoes


Whilst researching for Object Atelier, Alex and I chanced up an old clog making barn in the pyrenees, and was given a tour my the son of the maker. The barn was frozen in time so we could capture the process through the blanks left over. The arrival of plastic shoes and wellies rendered wooden shoe and their makers obsolete, there is one remaining workshop in the Ariege. They are surprisingly comfortable and effective at keeping out cold and mud.
