Brooch, by Dorothy Hogg

This steel and gold brooch was made by the Scottish artist Dorothy Hogg in 1986.

The blackened steel was pressed into an arrowhead shape, with gold laminates at the tip.

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.
