"H. C." - PURPLE CRYSTAL HEART BROOCH, 2022
This wonderful purple heart has been selected as part of an extra special collection of new pieces curated by Venetia Porter and her younger daughter Rhiannon Tripp, in memory of their mother & grandmother Thea Porter, who was Andrew's first patron in 1973. Their collection, entitled Thea's Gift, has been created in time for Mother's Day 2023. We hope Thea's Gift will inspire joyful and celebratory gift giving and send heartfelt love to mothers everywhere!
"H. C." was created in late 2022. Andrew Logan hopes this one-off piece of wearable sculpture brings joy.
This heart is extra sparkly. It features a triangle of magenta glass at it's centre, which has been set into black resin and framed on the lower edges by a series of faceted crystals and square glass beads, in various shades of purple. The crystals shine light in all directions making this brooch sure to catch people's attention!
The top two corners of the heart contain a lilac sun shaped glass bead, and a flower shaped glass bead. Between these is a faceted magenta crystal. This brooch features many elements that attract the light, and is sprinkled with a generous helping of purple glitter to add even more sparkle.
This is a truly dazzling little heart that is sure to make everyone that sees it smile!
The brooch measures approximately 3.5 by 4.5 cm at its widest points and is lightweight, weighing around 9 g. It's light weight means it can be attached to even the most delicate fabrics bins using a small safety pin embedded in the resin on the reverse. It would make an ideal gift for a loved one, or for yourself.
This piece of wearable art has been created with love by artist Andrew Logan in his studio in Mid-Wales. This brooch will be packaged in a gift box and sent to you via Special Delivery.
