laser cut hat

Entry Description

This hat is inspired by one of the Chinese traditional folk arts, paper-cut for window decoration, which often be used in Chinese New Year to render festival atmosphere and make a good wish for the new year. The red color symbolizes auspiciousness in Chinese Culture. It is different from traditional way of making hat. I used laser cut technology to create patterns on an acrylic board and then used heat gun to manipulate the hat shape. By combining traditional Chinese patterns with a western hat silhouette, I want to create a new contemporary and elegant look.
