Masquerade hat/mask

- by Diana Grappasonno

This week's theme: Masks

"A covering for the face" hardly begins to define what a mask is. In fact, there were more than 20 definitions for mask as a noun and a verb in the dictionary. Whether "a mask" or "to mask" - it can be fascinating, sinister, fun, mysterious and freeing.


Art: Masquerade hat/mask by Artist Diana Grappasonno
I actually made this piece to wear to a masquerade party. So it's sort of art, sort of functional. The base of the hat/mask is made with a special material I'd like to keep secret, but it is slightly pliable. I painted it and added all the adornments. It was made to fit my head and face so I don't know how well it will fit other people. But I think it makes a nice sculture and would probably look good displayed on a mannequin head.
