Brooch/Pendant

  • Kristina Logan, Brooch/Pendant, 2001, glass and sterling silver, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Museum purchase through the Richard T. Evans Fund, 2002.31

Luce Center Label

Kristina Logan often incorporates her glasswork into jewelry because she feels that “there is something deeply spiritual about an object that is made by hand and worn next to the skin.” The dots in Brooch/Pendant are characteristic of Logan’s work. She explains that “dots or circles are one of the most elemental art marks. They are simple and complete.” They may be simple to draw, but the dots are not easily made---Logan painstakingly placed each one by hand to create perfect spacing, a process that has earned her the reputation in the craft world as “The Dot Queen.”
