Shoe Monster is a delicately hand-crafted shoebox for my 9 years old boots, infamous for its unique aroma. It’s a fun toy where a user can smell my shoes by turning the handle. The handle turns gear mechanism that opens the mouth, turns a fan blade against the user and plays a music box which plays “Let it be” by Beatles. The music box is there to gently warn my user let my box be.
A hand carved handle. Walnut & European Elm.
I have collected different scrap woods abandoned in the dust bin and hand carved them into small components to add more whim.
