GREECE II - Blue Swimmer on Pearl Rocks Brooch, 2022
This brooch is part of a small collection of beautiful new brooches inspired by Andrew Logan's recent travels to Greece in June 2022.
These beautiful brooches embody Andrew Logan's love of travel and adventure; shells and stones selected from his vast collection take the form of rocks, cliffs, smashing waves and glittering, subterranean seabeds, where pearls and other treasures lie ready to be discovered. Tiny figures are poised ready to jump in or are already swimming in the reflecting blue-green mirrored sea.
These brooches have been handmade with joy by Andrew Logan in his studio in mid-Wales. Each brooch is signed, titled and dated by Andrew on the reverse.
Take Andrew's joyful and infectious spirit of adventure and discovery with you wherever you go with these new wonderfully unique pieces of wearable art.
GREECE II takes the form a wearable postcard. This unique and wonderful brooch features a tiny seated figure, set above a selection of iridescent pearl shell pieces, that take the form of rocks. Below these rocks are a line of 7 round pearls that frame the bottom edge of the brooch. The figure is set against an oblong piece of cornflower blue glass, which has a slight marbled effect, suggesting the moving patterns of the sea and sky. All of these elements have been set into blue resin, which has been covered on all sides by sparkling turquoise resin.
GREECE II measures just under 7cm by 7.5cm at its widest points and weighs 45g. It can be attached to a chosen garment using a gold coloured safety pin embedded in the resin on the reverse. It would make a perfect Summer memento, or a very special and unique gift.
