Artist's Description

A hat made from lead.
Lead has been a popular roofing material for centuries, being used for roofing, flashing, gutters, downspouts, and conductor heads. Although it is a heavy metal it is also very soft and maleable and can be easily beaten into almost any shape.
The apprentice lead beater would practice his skills by making objects from one single sheet of the metal (no joints allowed) such as this hat.
Lead, at certain exposure levels, is a poisonous substance to animals as well as for human beings. It damages the nervous system and causes brain disorders. So not a good material for making hats then.
