Collectible Festival PinPhilbrook's 34th annual Festival Pin was created by artist Amy Sanders de Melo and features 14K gold hand-textured “Philbrook” Braille on glazed porcelain.
Amy Sanders de Melo is a Colombian-American artist and educator living and working in Tulsa, Oklahoma. As an artist with vision and hearing loss, Amy strives to create work that speaks to the resiliency of the human spirit. Using Braille as a way of telling stories on her wheel-thrown porcelain pieces, these hand-textured Braille messages encourage reflection on one’s own humanity, and necessity of empathy and empowerment for individuals.Shop Now
