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?
