Object Detail


Description
A flat square brooch with an etched motif featuring 3 birds. The “air” around the birds is etched out and dark, while the birds remain with the original silver surface. Here the artist has treated the surface of the brooch like a zinc plate with an etching process – ground baked and then etched away.
