Welcome to August Phoenix!

Wearable artworks designed and handcrafted by Heather Daveno.

I design my hats one at a time from reclaimed textiles and "found objects". My work is inspired by the countries I have visited and historical eras I have studied. I fuse these influences into limited edition pieces of distinctive, wearable artworks that I sell through this website, and at selected shows and galleries across the USA.

August Phoenix, the noble bird that, in the legend of several different cultures rises from its own ashes to be born anew, refers to the recycled nature of my work. I make new hats from reclaimed coats, designed to be timeless, handcrafted to wear forever...
