sculpture and hat forms

scribbling at the Edward V. Valentine Sculpture Studio at the Richmond History Center

and also. . . I went to the exhibit "Time for Design" at the Visual Art Center, one part of the show featured the work of hat makers Ignatius Creegan & Rod Givens, this is a photo of hat forms they use in their work, I didn't have time to draw them but I wish I had, the shapes are wonderful and very strange to see after viewing Valentine's busts of famous folk, these like a collection of busts of some famous alien or robotic citizenry!
