No 953 Brooch
This is a Brooch . It was designed by Ramón Puig Cuyàs. We acquired it in 2016. Its medium is painted wood, plastic, silver, painted acrylic. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.
Puig Cuyàs believes that jewelry can communicate concepts linked to a universal sense of memory and myth, and also believes in the value of an artist’s insights into our place in the cosmos. His Walled Gardens brooch invites us to imagine a magical garden hidden behind the everyday fences we encounter, a metaphor for opening our senses to the many worlds around us.
