Hot Foil Stamped Glass Pins

These glass pins are handmade using a hot foil stamper and metal-backed photo-polymer plates. Gold foil stamped on to old clippings from used books. The first batch mostly uses imagery from a book on rocks and minerals, a book on national parks and another on Canadian landscapes.

Illustrated by Eunice Luk.

A selection of these glass pins are now available at Kid Icarus - 75 Nassau Street, Toronto. Check them out yourself and bring home an unique little gem. Two sizes are available.

The next batch of glass pins will travel with me to Portland, Oregon next month for the Portland Zine Symposum. They will also be available at Zine Dream III, hosted again at The Tranzac/The Toronto Zine Library. More details coming!
