So without further ado, here is Ceramic Dog, February 2007:
The more I look at this picture the more I sincerely hope that it is not racist. I’m not quite sure what we were doing with the hat, but there it is. The more I look at it the more I can see that there is probably no way this would be considered racist because it is so far removed from anything resembling a Chinese hat.
Here, I just looked up Chinese Hat online and this is the picture I got.
Hmmm. This is what I was going for when I started cutting the construction paper. But perhaps this visual aide would have come in handy when I was doing my design, because my hat looks nothing like the real Chines Hat. It sorta looks like a horrible mix of Chinese and sombrero, with a little bit of UFO thrown in.
Again, I must remind you that it is art. So this is my artistic interpretation of a Chinese Hat. Please try not to be intimidated by my skills and overall vision.
Happy New Year everyone.
