FRIED EGG BROOCH
Andrew Logan brooches are all created by hand and unique, as a visionary artist he is always exploring creative ideas and is known for incorporating found objects often from his travels within his work. His unisex brooch pins can be a statement piece and each brooch bears Andrew Logan’s signature. The fried egg is a recent piece but it is becoming one of Andrew's iconic brooches and a much asked about example of his wearable sculpture.
He first created the fried egg brooches for Indian fashion designer Manish Arora for his Ready-to-Wear show for Spring/Summer 2017 in the Paris Runway. Only three were originally made, two for the catwalk show and one was a gift to close friend and collaborator, fashion designer Zandra Rhodes.
The admirable brooch features a disc of convex glass at its centre that has been painted a rich yellowy orange colour on the underneath side. This yolk is laid over white resin that resembles a stylised egg white, embedded with pieces of milky white glass. There is also one irregular keshi pearl within the body of the egg white. The edges are sprinkled with a generous amount of iridescent white glitter, with some silver and various coloured flecks that give the egg some additional shimmer.
This fried egg is not for the faint hearted, it is certainly a statement piece and measures approximately 13 by 11.5 cm at its widest points. It has a gold coloured safety pin embedded in the resin at rear and has been signed by the artist Andrew Logan who created this piece in 2020. The brooch weighs 83 g and may not be suitable to pin directly through delicate fabrics, such as silk; alternatively it could be attached to a chain and worn as a necklace.
