MY DAD'S HATS

"Aloha. The powers that be gave me the 'paper-bag hat
assignment.' This photo essay, "CROWNING GLORY,"
a collection of 255 paper-bag hats, is for your viewing
pleasure."


-- moses

My dad's name is moses. He lives in Hawaii. He's an incredible artist.
I always hoped to become as good as he is, and I'm still working on it.
He can make art out of anything. Just look what happens when
he gets his hands on a few paper-bags...

These exquisite paper sculptures were featured in the July, 2000, issue
of the Smithsonian Magazine, and are now part of the permanent collection
of the Mingei International Museum, in San Diego, CA.

moses has neither e-mail nor stone tablets; however, he does have a PO Box.
Please address any questions or comments directly to him at:

moses
PO Box 2004
Kamuela, HI 96743

I'm sure he'd love to hear from you.
