OH TO BE BESIDE THE SEA - Blue Sun & Glittering Sea 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.
OH TO BE BESIDE THE SEA is a beautiful, mid-size brooch which is sure to demand some attention. The brooch is based on Andrew's classic sun designs, with a Summer twist. At the centre of the brooch is a circle of royal blue mirrored glass, which is framed on all edges by triangular pieces of mirror taking the form of a sun shape. At the top right corner of the brooch is a tiny bathing figure, whose arms are raised to hold a white beach ball. The figure is wearing a pink bathing suit. Underneath the figure is an unusually shaped piece of iridescent, ridged pearl which takes the form of a rock edge or wave. All of these elements are set into blue resin which has been covered with blue, silver and white glitter, to create a perfect holiday sun, mirroring a sparkling sea.
OH TO BE BESIDE THE SEA measures approximately 9.5cm by 9cm at its widest points and weighs 38g. 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.
