Black Rules

Black Rules brooch

   
Art Form Jewellery - brooch
Theme Black Singlet
Materials Black plastic (used in kitchens), nickel plated brooch pin
Size H70mm x W30mm


This plastic came from a cutlery drawer tray that was being tossed out by a friend of mine.

Such a lovely material to work with, smooth and uncomplicated. Think about how nice it would be to wipe clean.

From the fifties, a look of modern plain colours, pastel pinks, baby blues, but down on the farm, heartland New Zealand, were they really the true colours of live?

Black Rules - who helped form them?

Are they still just as valid? Do we expect a hot meal on the table when we walk in the door today?

Who wears their hand on their heart I wonder here.
