Handmade fused glass heart in aqua with a briar rose leaf design

The design is inspired by my love of nature and compound leaves.

Each leaf used in the design is carefully selected, dried and pressed. A limited number of pieces can be made due the fragility of the organic matter.

NB: I use a variety of different leaves when making these hearts and the leaf design may differ slightly to the one photographed.

The size of each heart is approximately 8cm x 8cm, the length of the ribbon/organza ribbon is 10cm.

Also available in other colours and leaf designs.

The fused glass heart makes a wonderful gift and is sent to you in a white cardboard gift box with tissue/kraft paper lining. We’re more than happy to include a personalised message and send direct to a gift recipient if required. The gift box is included in the price.

Using a technique called inclusion fusing, the leaves are used with fine glass powders (frit) and copper with the elements captured between two sheets of clear glass. These are then put into the kiln at temperatures above 800 degrees centigrade to produce the fused piece. Each piece is then cold-worked to grind off any sharp edges before returning to the kiln for a final fire polish to ensure an all-round glassy finish.

Glass always has to be carefully annealed (cooled) to prevent a build-up of stress in order to ensure it is strong and stable and I have carefully worked out fusing programmes on my kilns for different thicknesses of glass.

A wire loop is used between the sheets of glass to enable the piece to be hung.

Where I make more than one of a design, due to the handmade process and the nature of using organic matter, there may be slight differences in size, colour, texture and design, from piece to piece. While I try to ensure they are as consistent as possible, it will always mean that each piece is unique and while every effort is made to accurately represent the colours when photographed, please be aware that different monitors may display the colours differently.
