Blue Window

Handmade cast bronze medal with patina

This handcarved bronze art medal was created by artist and medal maker Kate Ive. She designed it while on residency in Bulgaria.

Kate was selected as the British Art Medal Society’s ‘New Medallist’. The award is run by BAMS in collaboration with the British Museum, V&A, Royal Mint and National Academy of Art Sofia, Bulgaria. Kate spent 1 month at the National Academy in Bulgaria, where she created this art medal.

During her residency, Kate was staying in an old traditional Bulgarian house in Veliko Tarnovo, called the ‘Blue House’. This old house inspired her art medal, ‘Blue Window’. She hand carved this unique design into a plaster blank. She used found objects from the house. Kate embedded these artefacts into the surface of the artwork. This piece was then cast in bronze metal and patinated in blue.

This handcarved bronze art medal is an edition of 25. Please get in touch to enquire about availability.
