AUSTRALIAN BROOCH - ULURU LIFE, 1996
Andrew Logan brooches are handcrafted and unique, as this visionary artist is always exploring creative designs and often uses recycled materials. His unisex brooch pins can be a statement piece and each brooch bears Andrew Logan’s signature. This brooch, named 'Uluru Life', was created by Andrew Logan in 1996 after a trip to Australia. This vintage brooch had been on display at the Museum of Sculpture and is now released for sale with Andrew Logan's Vintage collection.
The brooch features a brown and cream coloured disc in its centre, featuring a squatting person, possibly reminiscent of a cave painting. This is surrounded by fragments of bronze, brown and silver mirror and a white and brown creature which resembles a witchetty grub (which is a term used in Australia for the large, white, wood-eating larvae of several moths). These design elements are laid over black resin and decorated with mainly gold and silver glitter.
This characterful brooch pin measures approximately 7 by 8 cm at its widest points and weighs around 35g. There is a safety pin embedded on the reverse side and the brooch is reasonable lightweight, hence suitable to affix to most fabrics.
