{Origin 2009} Abbott and Eellwood figurative brooches and sculptures

Thursday, 15 October 2009

Mike Abbott and Kim Ellwood live and work together, by the sea and moor just outside St Ives in Cornwall. Their contemporary collection of hand printed figurative brooches, with themes including the garden and the sea, are made to wear, display and hopefully to bring a smile!

Their one-off hand printed figurative sculptures explore narrative themes loosely drawn…. individual characters emerge through the process of making, using images printed onto metal and found objects to tell a new story, creating objects with humour and pathos!

I love the fact that they recycle the materials they use in their pieces, the colors, the patterns...they definitely put a smile on my face...
