This strange and elegant headdress if for all those days when you just need to be a sculpture. I could see this being used as a costume in a play.

The piece was formed using the needle felting process in which you stab loose fiber repeatedly with a barbed needle until in mattes together into solid felt. Patterns, colors, and other details are then felted on in the same manner. This is a labor-intensive process, so hours of work went into making this unique hat. It is made from 100% vegan friendly fiber.

My main objectives are reviving the everyday wear of exquisite hats and elevating their artistic merit. I make sculptural yet wearable needle-felted hats which appear both as abstract forms and figurative creatures, transforming them from accessories into art pieces that evoke feelings of timelessness, whimsy and the bizarre. Inspiration for these singular creations comes from synthesizing research of vintage hats, couture hats, visual art, and animals. The goal of this series is to redefine the boundary between fashion and art and to push the needle-felting process beyond “craft” into the realm of fine art.

Please feel free to message me if you have any questions or would like to commission me to make any other type of hat!
