Welcome to The Phoenix Files!

This blog is a collection of papers and how-to articles I have written over the past 25+ years, as well as my travel journals and announcements.  Scholarly works from "The Library" on my old website, are labeled here as "Historica Tractatu." 

My travels have had heavy influence on my work and are the 'back story' behind many of my designs. Some of my older journals are revised from the original, and most link to photo albums on Facebook.  

Today's the Day - The Phoenix Rises!

Posted by on 8/9/2014

Today's the Day! The hats are displayed, the tables are set, the games set out and the Room of Free Fabrics is colorized for your convenience...

Please join me to celebrate the new face of my 15 year old business... Lao Hats is now (and completely) August Phoenix! Still the same great hats, handmade from reclaimed materials, but with a new look and logo.

Nature is even gracing this event with a full moon and a meteor shower!

Hours are 10AM - 10PM at my home studio in the Northgate area of Seattle. If you didn't already opt into my mailing list (and receive the full details) you can PM me on Facebook or call for the address to (206) 406-5907.
