Bird Brooch (Black) by Melanie Tomlinson


A handmade and printed metal brooch.

Dimensions: 72 x 50 mm

Melanie has developed and refined her specialist techniques for printing onto sheet-tinned steel for over fifteen years. The painstaking process starts with the creation of original, colourful and highly intricate gouache paintings which serve as masters for the printing process. The metal is then hand-printed and coated before being cut, folded, coaxed, smoothed and transformed into an intricate little bird.
