The Mad Hatter..
March Hare...March Hare, you cranky ole rabbit....
Look what you have done to Dormouse simply out of habit...
You gave him that potion again did you not...
the potion that shrunk him
made him tiny and bound
and now fast asleep
in my tea pot he's found.
Oh my mind's in a quandry
what shall we do
for it's tea time
in 30 plus 2
March Hare March Hare, you cranky ole rabbit
you're fixin to see an angry Mad Hatter!!
Mad Hatter must have his tea...for tea time is precisely at 6...not sooner not later but right on the dot...I pity poor March Hare for filling him with anger...for everyone knows the Hatter is madder than any old Hare.
Mad Hatter is one of my ooaks to celebrate "Alice". He has a strong wire armature and permanently is in a sitting position. His body is wrapped in wool yarn and then dressed in his finest clothes. All of which were sewn by hand using vintage fabrics. His face, hands and feet/shoes were sculpted using Prosculpt clay. His eyes and details were hand painted using acrylic paints. His hair is llama's wool. His top hat is made from felt. Dormouse and the teapot were sculpted by hand out of Sculpey clay and then painted using acrylic paints and fine MICA powders. Hatter's seat is a paper mache star box (which has been sealed closed) and covered in an old Alice in Wonderland print. It has a fine covering of German glass, a yarn border and felt bottom. Hatter sits from top to bottom at 9 inches. He can be removed from his seat and sat where ever you like.
Hatter will be going up to the Art & Soul gallery in Washington. I'm so excited about him making the journey. I know that he will just beg someone to take him home with them, just make sure he doesn't have any of those potion bottles with him...LOL!!!!
Until next time....
