Van Gogh Sunflowers Vase Brooch
DESCRIPTION Michael Michaud
Vincent van Gogh was famous for his paintings of Sunflowers created in 1888 in Arles in the south of France when he was staying with his friend Paul Gauguin. The sunflowers were originally intended as decoration Gauguin's room in the “Yellow House” that they were renting, and now become synonymous with Van Gogh’s name. The sunflower, a haughty plant, is the tallest in the garden. One of the favorite name for this plant is the Italian "Girasole", because the flowers literally turn their heads to follow the sun's daily course.
This Sunflowers Brooch pin is cast in bronze with flowers of yellow enamel and gold leaf, accented with ambers and peridots. This piece is handcrafted and cast from an actual plant, using a technique similar to lost-wax casting.
The sunflower brooch is cast in bronze with flowers of yellow enamel and gold leaf, accented with ambers and peridots.
