MINI FRIED EGG & PEARLS BROOCH
Andrew Logan brooches are all created by hand. His wearable art brooch pins can be a statement piece and each brooch bears Andrew Logan’s signature. The fried egg is one of Andrew Logan's iconic brooches and a much asked about example of his wearable sculpture, he has recently created a collection of mini egg brooches in 2022.
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 Only three were originally made, two for the catwalk show and one was a gift to close friend and collaborator, fashion designer Zandra Rhodes. It is a firm favourite of hers and she adds, “Of course - I now couldn’t exist without my fried egg - what an inspired brooch! I just need a couple of chips with it.”
This 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, semi-opaque glass and one fragment of slightly striped patterned glass. There are six pearls also featured amongst these fragments. The edges are sprinkled with a generous amount of iridescent white glitter, with some silver and various coloured flecks that give the egg some additional shimmer.
This fried egg is smaller than Andrew's other fried egg brooches measuring approximately 8 by 6 cm at its widest points and weighing 32 g. Own one of Andrew's most iconic pieces of wearable art, you will be sure to sizzle in this one.
