Oh my, it's December already!

Finding a face for rabbit ears hat.  Somehow the rabbit ears hat I made for one small head ending looking perfect on this little head.  This one had a large red wing blackbird, but once all done it just didn't look right.  Rimming the edge and epoxied into the ears with copper tape was perfect.  I love how the copper looks more late autumn-wintry than gold leaf. Also reminds me of the old copper rabbit ears antennae for television sets. Receiving information, visuals and the world.  Absorbing it all in through those copper ears. 

"I don't see much sense in that," said Rabbit
"No," said Pooh humbly, "there isn't. But there was going to be when I began it. It's just that something happened to it along the way."

  3. Love the rabbit ears and your analogy of receiving info & visuals and absorbing it. She does look festive with her hat and ruby lips . . .

  4. Oh this is amazing! Love the rabbit ears hat! I thought at first that it was a small crown or something like it.

  5. Linda---Actually the rim and inner ears are copper tape. I have a roll of it that I used when trashcan firing some large coiled built pots. You can get it at stained glass stores in different widths.

    Judy--It is hard to see in this photo, but the eyes are green with chartreuse eye shadow. The face is egg shaped with this lovely foamy crawl around the side and top of head. It is about the size of an ostrich egg.

    sapphire---I have always loved the look of headdresses (which includes crowns)---and their inherent symbolism and preciousness.

    Thank you all for your comments!
