Zack Peabody, Brooch 348.2, 1998, steel, niobium, titanium, Smithsonian American Art Museum, © 1998, Zack Peabody, Museum purchase through the Renwick Acquisitions Fund, 1999.11A-C
In Brooch 348.2, Zack Peabody used industrial metals and limited his design to only a few solder joints, relying mostly upon “cold connections” of threaded rod. He left exposed the bolts, screws, and interlocking strips in the structure of this brooch to emphasize the “calculated clarity” of its design. The first part of the title, 348, refers to the number of parts used to build this work, while the second indicates that Brooch is the artist’s second design with this many pieces.
