Blue Ribbon Boots

Southwestern Design Conference, 2005
Best Artist Award: Art to Wear

Lisa Sorrell was taken by surprise by her award…saying that bootmakers are often overlooked in design shows like this. Perhaps this is because cowboy boots so often hold true to their “function” …whereas the jackets and jewelry can reach much farther into fantasy.

Lisa’s “Water Serpent” boots have an intricate inlay design and beautiful finishing work which showcase Lisa’s fine craftsmanship… the movement found in her serpent’s curving path illustrates Lisa’s artistic flair.
