Galactic Orbits – Brooch by NancyDee Sculptures
This 3-dimensional brooch features a solar system somewhere in deep space! I made this one-of-a-kind 5x8cm art brooch from a flat piece of basalt and round pieces of metal (one large one looking like Jupiter, and others also looking very planet-like), 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 they are available in-store and online through Incube8r Gallery as well.
