GREECE I - Turquoise Sea, Rocks, Indian Fish 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 I takes the form of a wearable postcard. This unique and wonderful brooch features a cluster of unusual, iridescent, textured pearl stones and shell pieces, which form a mound of rocks coated with white and turquoise glitter. To the right, a tiny bathing figure wearing a blue swimming costume can be seen. The main expanse of the brooch is formed of 8 pieces of reflective, cyan blue mirrored glass, and in the lower half of the brooch, two gold beaded Indian fish have been set into blue glitter. These beautiful, patterned fish also feature orange and green beading. All of these elements have been set into blue resin, which has been covered on all sides by sparkling turquoise resin.
GREECE I measures just under 8cm x 9.5 cm at its widest points and weighs 50g. 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.
