Sarah Perkins: Purple Stitched Brooch
Out of stock
Silver, enamel. The stitched details on the surface are a signature of Sarah Perkins' enameled vessels and brooches. This brooch is encrusted with a coarse, sugar fired enamel texture. Approximately 2.25" x 2.25".
"I started doing the stitching after a trip to India where I was overwhelmed by the beautiful stitched, embroidered, and printed fabrics. I love textiles and their reference to 'women’s work,' and they have influenced my work in many ways."
