Rainbow heart glass brooches by Martin Cheek
These delightful handmade glass brooches are by mosaic artist Martin Cheek. They are made from murini which Martin uses as a main component in his astounding mosaics. Glass rods of different colours are fused together to make something a bit like a stick of rock, then sliced and the slices fused to make soft shapes. Two are used together with another fusing in the kiln to make each of these heart-shaped rainbow brooches.
There are two shapes, either a little narrower and 'fatter' or wider and a little elongated. The size of each style ranges from just over 3cm - 4cm across.
As every item is unique, please choose the shape you would like and we will select a brooch to send out. Use the examples shown to make your choices.
Martin Cheek is a versatile mosaic artist based in Broadstairs, Kent. He founded the technique to incorporate glass fusions into his mosaics. In so doing, he essentially transformed the art and added unique textural interest to his work. The intricately detailed glass fusions, all made by Martin in his workshop, take his mosaics to another dimension, adding varying degrees of reflectivity and energy, something not easily obtained using traditional mosaic materials.
