Carrot Top – Brooch by NancyDee Sculptures
This carrot-topped happy face can’t help but make people smile when they see it! I made this one-of-a-kind 3x6cm art brooch from a wooden frame chock, a small tile, two screw heads, crushed washer and a glass ‘carrot’, all found on the streets of Melbourne.
I normally create larger wall sculptures and 3D sculptures from the wood, metal and tiles I find. Recently, however, I had a chance to think smaller. Through Instagram I met handmade jewellery designer Lynn Powers from New Orleans. She regularly encouraged me to try something ‘jewellery sized’, but I never had.
Then I saw that the Contemporary Art Society of Victoria was holding its annual brooch exhibition, and I entered. Making brooches has been great fun. Five of my pieces were on display in the 2019 Australian National Brooch Show, and now my brooches are available in-store and online through Incube8r Gallery as well.
