Wacky Wendy - Mandala




She's an improvisational comic entertainer by nature, a sculptor by training and a paper wizard by craft. Wacky Wendy has long dazzled thousands of audiences with her 'instant' party hats that she deftly cuts from paper disks in just seconds. Her one-of-a-kind talent is in turning fine-art into fun-art, by transforming paper into intricate, clever, personalized~and funny hats, masks, costumes, accessories, displays and anything else you can imagine!

That's the almost unbelievable number of paper plates that Wendy claims to have cut-up over her career as the world's fastest madcap milliner. The invention of the Wacky Hat was made from nothing more than one single paper circle transformed into a
pop-up party hat. Wacky Wendy's new 3-D designs frequently average ten plates per hat!


According to Wendy, that's how much more exciting her Wacky Hats are compared to traditional party hats. She puts one of her wacky works of art on a lucky recipient's head, and they are transformed into the character depicted on the hat, and improvisation, role-playing and good-natured fun flow freely and spontaneously.

The history of Wacky Wendy dates back to 1982 when bored at a backyard barbecue, Wendy began to play with the paper plates. In an instant of quiet genius she realized the beauty of the circle, infinite and rhythmic, almost Zen-like, and in it's reincarnation each colorful paper plate became the ideal artist's material. As she discovered how well the medium lent itself to her imaginative cutting, she was
also struck with the beauty of taking a simple common object, and turning it into an item of fun as well as art.


From those humble beginnings, Wendy expanded into a whole plethora of paper plate sculptures creating such masterpieces as a ten foot dragon for a museum, wedding and party dresses for some of New York's classiest Fifth Ave. department stores, and even "fun wear bikinis" for a major magazine. As much fun as these incredibly intricate projects were to create, she always found that her greatest sense of achievement and satisfaction came from the delighted smiles of people as they discovered for themselves the magic that she discovered back in 1982.
