Lauren endeavours to create objects that have more than just function and are even more than just art; pieces which are a talisman to provoke conversation, excite the imagination and transport those that engage with them to a realm beyond the norm.
The surreal ‘Shoe of Eden’ design is inspired by the beguiling story of the Garden of Eden. Adopting a somewhat unusual drawing method called surrealist-automatism, Lauren has captured an alternative ending to the narrative. One in which Adam is devoured by the Serpent and Eve seeks her revenge, skinning the cunning creature and fashioning it into a boot! (Well, we did say it was surreal…)
