Degree show work (2020) - The Sassy Lassie brooch

  • Hayley Irving

My degree show work was inspired by growing up in a derelict area of Glasgow in a tenement with 3 generations of women. My mum and my gran always had a can do attitude no matter how hard the situation got and my work is aimed to showcase them and all the other hard working tenement women. "The Sassy Lassie - Brooch" "When she's no in her apron and wearing a pair of marigolds to do the house work or clean the close. Granny Marion is one Sassy lassie, always with gin in hand. Fresh off the plane for her gals holiday, a week in the Costa Del Sol is exactly what she needs after years of chasing wee neds oot the close"
