Framed Cast Heart 2
These adorable little hearts have been hand made in a cast iron mould using various soft opal colours highlighted with specially sourced glass called Murrine.
The Murrine is in various forms, such as leaves, poppies, flower shapes and colour variation.
There is also a hint of sparkle and iridescence within the hearts for added luxury.
They are then capped with clear glass pieces to give depth and definition.
The hearts are then fired in a kiln to a high temperature to melt all the pieces into one.
They are then cleaned and any rough edges filed down before a final 'fire polish'.
I have mounted them onto a Perspex layer and inserted them into a box frame.
This can be placed on a shelf, windowsill, desk or hung on the wall.
It would make a perfect little gift for Valentines Day, Mothers Day, Birthday, Christmas or just to say 'I'm thinking of You'.
Heart size is 5.5 x 5.5 cm approx.
Insert is 9 x 9 cm
Overall size is 12.5 x 12.5 cm.
