PENGUIN PARADE, ICE GOLD BROOCH, 2022
PENGUIN PARADE is a new golden brooch by Andrew Logan, handmade in his studio in mid-Wales in 2022. He hopes this one-off piece of wearable sculpture will bring you joy and a ray of golden sunshine.
This wonderfully detailed brooch depicts three golden penguins on the way up. The gold penguins are collaged textile pieces with fine gold beading and embroidery. Setting the scene are a triangular shard of white gold ice, a shimmering chunk of white, glittering stone, a row of tiny, crystal gems and a line of three irredescent pearls, which shine coloured light in all directions. All of the elements of this wonderful and usual brooch are set into white resin which has been covered in white and multicoloured glitter.
PENGUIN PARADE is signed and dated on the back by Andrew Logan. A golden safety pin is embedded on reverse side and the brooch dimensions are approximately 9.5 x 9.5 cm, with a weight of 53g.
