I've been making top hats like, well, a Mad Hatter! Weddings, graduation gifts and theatrical productions have created an opportunity for me to perfect my process so each one is more fun to create than the last.
I'm hoping to start going to some trade-shows to gain more exposure for these one-of-a-kind, handmade treasures. Stop by my etsy shop (http://www.etsy.com/shop/TranzendentalArts) if you'd like to order one for yourself, or pass the word along to local theatres, brides-to-be, etc.
These are made to order, so whatever your heart's desire, I can make it happen!
Quirky, original designs made from rescued, up-cycled materials to give you a good feeling and a great look.
I am a theatre design specialist with experience in costume, set and lighting design as well as directing. I have been recycling materials to realize my designs since the beginning and I feel that new materials should be used very sparingly.
Sometimes the materials I use retain their original form, but often they are integrated and not readily recognizable. I enjoy the challenge and spend a great deal of time dissembling items to make use of as many elements as possible in my process.
