Remnants of Halloween

This year, it worked out perfectly! We bought 120 pieces of candy and had 118 trick-or-treaters…leaving one piece each for Chuck and me. Other years, we have either had to ‘go dark’ because we have run short OR taken all the extras off to the candy munchkins at work to get it out of the house.

Licorice Shoes by Andy Yoder, 2003

A few weeks ago, we were in Philadelphia and came across a pair of 7-foot-long shoes on display. Artist Andy Yoder had crafted them out of licorice candy! They were beautifully done using all black licorice of varying shapes and sizes. At the time, I wondered how Andy had come up with such a clever idea. Today it occurred to me…perhaps he just had too many Halloween leftovers!

Regardless his source of materials or cause for inspiration, his shoes definitely get two votes of approval here at CatTail Studio Arts. Nice work, Andy!
