Pilchuck Madness #4

So in the photo above (you really should click on it to see it in all its glory) this terrible hat that looks like a Barbie/My-Little-Pony horse combined into one mind-blowing object. And yes, you heard me right, it really is a hat.

I first met this hat on Friday when a group of us was digging in the costume pile for the party being thrown by the TAs. Jane modeled it for us, and someone, somewhere has photos of that. I forgot all about it until last night when I had wandered over to the hot shop to see if my cast glass pieces were out of the kiln yet. There it was, sitting in a lawn chair right outside the shop.

Immediately I scurried back to the studio to grab my camera.

I may not be very good at remembering to carry my camera with me, but I did know that it was important to document that hat. How did it get there? (The hot shop isn't particularly close to the metal/wood shop where the party was.) What tales can this hat tell? Who the hell made it?

I'm gonna need that hat. Or, at the very least, I'm printing it out and FRAMING it. It's brilliant, and you're brilliant for taking it!

I'm DEFINITELY bringing my camera to the student auction party on Friday night. I'm hoping someone will be wearing it and I can get a photo.

Dude, that hat belongs to Fiona Apple.
