Joyce Degruiter is a wonderful Dutch sculptress who enjoy making shoe sculptures among other things. The Windmill shoe sculpture stands tall at 39 cm and is made from ceramic and gold (22,5 krt). The unique artwork made of reduced & recycled ceramic,hand painted pieces of Dutch Delftblue ware, and pieces from the famous Makkum tiles.The inside of the shoe is plated with French gold. The sculpture a loving and ironic tribute to the iconic high heel of windmills of the artist's homeland.
