A theatrical dancers headpiece - a design that was commissioned by Inishowen Carnival Group for Dublin St Patricks Day Parade 2014 'Mermen's Tale - was selected to feature as July 2014 'Hat of the Month' on the world renowned online industry publication, Hat Talk e-Magazine. After making several studies of shells I sculpted a shell block from Styrofoam to create the headpiece. The piece was trimmed with peacock feathers and secured on the head with a covered headband. 15 of the designs were made for a dance group who 'collected the souls of fishermen' in the pageant.
