The brooch show is a national exhibition organised by The Contemporary Artists Society. It has been a lovely source of inspiration as I have explored the possibilities of what it means to work on a small scale. I have previously explored shrink plastic and various mixed media techniques. These explorations can be seen at the societies gallery pages for the 2013 and 2014 Brooch show http://www.contemporaryartsociety.org.au/galleries. and in my menu pages.
Brooch show invite
This year polymer clay has inspired my desire to play sculpturally. I have played with a variety of brooches, wall pieces and a small sculpture over the past few weeks. These four are my final submissions that will travel to two locations as listed below.
