Round 3D Brooch

3-17 Brooch, 2" round, fabricated from industrially painted aluminum, hydraulically formed, pierced and engraved, cold connected (a similar image, with slight variations, can be made upon request).

This collectable brooch looks great for men as well.


David calls his brooches “cartoonos roundos” because each piece tells a story similar to a cartoon panel in a newspaper. Punched from industrially painted aluminum sheets into 2” diameter circles, each piece begins with a sketch and is completed within two hours to keep the idea fresh and alive. Some brooches tell a clear story while others require words or symbols. David describes the story in words below:

"While walking through the back pages, certain times, places and people who once were came to life again. As seen in hindsight, we are reminded of who were are, how we got to this exact point and time and why we are, who we are. Thanks to all of the known and unknown mentors who gave us their lives along the way to forming the clay of today."
