The Glass Slipper and the Cinderella Story (2006.2.11)

Probably the most famous shoe in the world

& Probably the most unusual shoe in the world

** This is a sentence I wrote when I officially started the glass shoe production service in the summer of 2003 **

Maybe the most famous shoe in the world

&

Probably the most unusual shoes in the world

If there were shoes made of glass

If you touch it...is it chilly?

If you put it on your palm...is it heavy?

if

What if it was on this desk in front of you?

Have you ever felt that way?

"The most famous shoes in the world...the most rare shoes in the world" and "If there were shoes made of glass" were officially announced in the summer of 2003. A message that I thought about how to tell you when I did it. 

Cinderella stories, strangely similar stories with plots all over the world. About 300 years ago, Perrault put together "Cinderella" based on such stories.

The fact that Cinderella has captivated so many people around the world for generations may have been a trick that Perrault planned as a story with a common DNA throughout the world. maybe. (*Perrault has a background as an architect who studied law.)

The reason why the Cinderella story is loved so much is because the "glass slipper" "exists".

"The existence of the glass slipper"  Only one existence made Cinderella a special story for people around the world. In 2002, when I was thinking only about the glass slipper, I found a "singularity" in the "existence of the glass slipper" in the summer of 2003, a year later. The singularity is entrusted to the words of the message, "Probably the most famous shoes in the world & probably the most unseen shoes in the world." 

Nobody has ever seen the real thing, but there is an image of a "glass slipper" in their minds. Ever since I first encountered the story of Cinderella when I was a child, the existence of the glass slipper has been firmly rooted somewhere in my heart, and before I knew it, it existed in a “specific” way. It's strange. When I was little, I remember that glass slippers didn't have much of a "shape". For some reason, now that you're an adult, don't you have the image that the shape has a concrete shape, but it remains "somehow"? 

The ``existence of the glass slipper'', which is ``somehow concrete'', rooted in the heart, and this glass slipper made of real glass with weight meet. When an impression is carved, the heart goes beyond "somehow specific". At that time, after that, the singular point: "The most famous shoes in the world" & "The most rare shoes in the world", with one of his points as a starting point, the original memories (story) of the two of them were written. I hope you go. February 11, 2006
