    The shoes in the last image are a rip-off. Marloes ten Bhomer invented a leather mache technique back in 2003! http://www.lucymackintosh.ch/archives.php?id=47&image_id=626

    Hi Barbara, I know Marloes ten Bhomer her shoe you are talking about, but I think that Gwendolyn could have come up with the same / similar idea and if not then there is a saying: it doesnt matter where the idea comes from, but where you take it! I think the work here is great. This whole oh that’s a rip off bullshit is nothing but playa hating.
