Brooch, by Jack Cunningham

This painted wooden brooch with a steel pin was made by the Scottish artist Jack Cunningham in 1986.

The flat wooden splinter brooch has a serrated and a pointed end. It is painted dark green at the pointed end, turning lighter green with dots towards the serrated end.

During the 1980s the Scottish Development Agency purchased a number of hand-crafted items for its Scottish Crafts Collection. The aim of the collection was to inform the public of craft production in Scotland through touring exhibitions and education programmes. When the Scottish Craft Council was wound up, the collection was transferred to the National Museums of Scotland.
