Making my Boudica A Norfolk Story animated film was such fun, that this weekend I thought I would make a set of Mud larking Brooches in the style of Boudica to sell, wear and give to my friends..
I was in a manic collage sort of mood. Most of my best work has come from this kind of creative play, you never quite know what you will discover. Maybe another film or a book who knows?
I had almost run out of suitable bits of broken pottery so on Sunday, my partner and I went down to Vauxhall Embankment to find some more.
The very first thing I found was this.
How Grand is that!! Immediately putting us in a fantastic mood.
We were also lucky as it was almost the lowest tide of the year revealing to us for the first time, the first known London Bridge, built 3500 years ago in the Bronze Age around 1500 BC. This was first discovered in 1993 when the remains were uncovered by erosion of the foreshore.
Here are a few of my best Brooches. More coming soon from my shop!
