Created during the final year of my degree, The Classic Collection consists of three vessels, made referencing components of the Reebok Classic trainer. Taking elements of the deconstructed shoe to create a 2D template, I re-imagine these shapes into 3D forms using flat sheet. Each sheet is digitally drawn and chemically milIed prior to construction echoing the manufacturing process of the shoe itself. The strong graphic detail such as the font, pattern of the sole, stitching and lace hole rivets all acts as reference points to the original characteristics and are evident in the finished series of works.
