I was in home depot yesterday when a women followed me down an aisle and greeted me with excitement over my perch hat. When I told her it was my design she was very interested and asked me for my card. I had her take a picture with my "smart" phone.

This is my method for making a blocking cord. I use 100% hemp rope to make my cords as did old time milliner's/hatters.

These are several of my designs that I have created for HAF art cap exchange project. This international project that started in 2015 and has included artists from the USA, Japan, The Netherlands, Israel, Ireland, Bulgaria, Australia, and France. I ship out a "blank" cap with five color choices. I am using my open-weave straw ball cap that I designed in 2013. The surface is the perfect medium to embellish with variety of materials, i.e., textile, straw, wire, glass, leather, plastic, etc. Once the embellished hat is returned to me, I then create a response hat, which compliments the hat I received. My creation is then shipped to the artist.

"art bites"
Men in Hats of Antiquity
hat: "grapevine top hat" hand woven steel wire frame with woven grapevine and leather band and brim.
The two-day tour talk was part of CMA Art Bites 2015. I presented this tour in efforts to show the cultural position men played throughout "western" history, from Roman-Greco thru the Medieval - Renaissance Periods. The hat was the catalyst. Men of antiquity had a unique way of expressing themselves with headgear. What we would view as feminine and ostentatious by today's standard, was a norm. A sidebar of my presentation was to look at the position Africans played during these periods. The collection at CMA reflected the great disparity when it comes to African representation in Art and Culture during these periods. Oddly, but an expected norm was the lack of any, not one image or sculpture represented the African presence during these periods within CMA's collection.
Some of us are familiar with the elaborate headdress worn during this same time frames within the continent of Africa and other African Diaspora countries; CMA does have such displays in their collection. The legendary black Saint Maurice represented one of the best examples of my support materials to reflect this. Though an accurate historical narrative is not available, one must deduce conclusions from iconography material. The six-volume collection, published by UNESCO in the early 1970's, " The Image of the Black in Western Art" was my primary references for my support material. I collected works in paintings and sculpture which gave visual support to reference this point. I paralleled these works during the periods covered in the tour.
I am standing in CMA "Armour Court" collection. This is the period in which Saint Maurice was reflected in my presentation.
