 Open Sandals by Elin Hughes

A key part of the In Their Footsteps trail on Stow Hill is Open Sandals by Elin Hughes, currently studying BA Ceramics at CSAD, Cardiff Met.  This pair of East African sandals in clay is based on designs created by participants of The Sanctuary Project. People all over the world have travelled to Newport, some fleeing undemocratic regimes. Newport seeks to be known as a city of democracy .
