Frog - Brooch in Glass
1 1/2" x 1 1/4" brooch, 3/4" x 4" x 3"
Cast. Open Edition Cast Series.
The Bill Reid original 22k gold frog pin was executed in 1971, using the repoussé technique. It is now on permanent display at the University of British Columbia's Museum of Anthropology in Vancouver, BC. A mold was made from the original from which an open edition casting was made in sterling silver. Each frog is finished by hand and stamped with the artist's crest, 'the wolf' hallmark, on one foot. When not worn, it floats on a sandblasted glass pool designed and crafted by John Nutter.
