About the work
For Fels, Delly has created The Gatherer Crown - an exclusive edition of 10 bespoke hats. Designed for the forager, each hat is constructed in her distinctive patchwork style from dyed organdie cotton and features 16 stitched pockets to carry and display collected flora. They are finished with beeswax to ensure water resistance and over time as the wax softens, they will mould naturally to the wearer’s head. Each hat comes with a hand-picked bundle of dried botanicals and briers foraged by the artist on Hackney Marshes.
