FRIED EGG AND PEARLS 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 has become one of Andrew's more iconic brooches and is 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 Only three were originally made, two for the catwalk show and one was a gift to close friend and collaborator, fashion designer Zandra Rhodes.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 and slightly textured semi-opaque glass. There are seven irregular keshi pearls amidst these glass fragments. The edges are sprinkled with a generous amount of iridescent white glitter, with one of the edges sprinkled with brown glitter making this a well done fried egg.
This fried egg is not for the faint hearted, it is certainly a statement piece and measures approximately 11 by 13 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 2022. The brooch weighs 91 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.
