Carol Markel's handmade hats are sculpture for the body, in my view. I was searching for fiber artists who were pushing the boundaries of the media. Sue Kreitzman put me in touch with Carol Markel. I love Carol's bold sense of color and style. Carol's design is so unique. I'd never seen hats like Carol's before. I find them compelling.  I am honored to have her beautiful sculptural hats in the show.
