Russian artist Irina Ignateva lives in Saint-Petersburg, but her work takes inspiration from all over the world. The idea for Geometric Roses, her BucketFeet shoe, came to life when Irina was lounging in her grandmother’s country house—it was there that she watched the flowers in her grandmother’s long tended flowerbed, and she soon quickly sketched the loose outline of the beautiful, lush roses. She gathers creativity from birds, plants, architecture. When asked what motivated her to design a BucketFeet shoe, she answered, “I saw the site, and thought why not? I can try!”
