A wearable piece of art glass based on the excitement, vibrancy and colour of the Water Circus in Great Yarmouth. This brooch - part of the CirQ Series - is unique, individually designed and handmade in my Norfolk studio. My work highlights the beauty of glass and the way that it reflects colour, light and texture.
I work with glass elements in a cold state which I assemble and manipulate before firing and fusing them in a kiln. Making each brooch involves up to 10 processes and takes on average 3-4 days to complete. The different types of glass that I use include sheet, frits, confetti, stringers and paint.
My aim in creating the CirQ series is to create minature works of art that are affordable, unusual and fun to wear.
The diameter of the brooch is 6cms/ 2.25inches with a silver safety catch fastening. It is packed in a good quality fuschia pink presentation box with an artist's information tag.
