"SUN RACE" - Neon Orange Brooch, 2021
SUN RACE 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!
SUN RACE is a joyful and uplifting neon orange brooch in the shape of a sun. At the centre is a circle of vivid tangerine mirrored glass, which has an iridescent, marbled quality. This circle of glass has a crack to the left side, running from top to bottom. Andrew Logan purposefully includes cracks in his work, believing these cracks bring his wearable art pieces luck and longevity!
The edges of the sun are formed using 8 triangles of orange glass, as well as a square and an oval bead of a lighter orange shade. On each side of the brooch is a large, oval, coral pink faceted crystal which shines light in all directions. There are also 5 smaller oval glass beads adding even more sunshine. All of these elements have been set into neon orange resin, and sprinkled with orange and multicoloured glitter.
This stunning and colourful brooch measures 10 x 11cm at its widest points and weighs 63g. It can be attached to a chosen garment using a large 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.
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.
