One of the great things about doing commission art is you get ideas from folks who know what they want but need helpd making the idea become a reality. The idea for these fused glass hearts came from a client who wanted a unique gift for an engagement party.
The hearts are shaped from a piece of hand raked glass so no two are alike. The swirling colors look fabulous with or without back light. They are finished with a low tarnish artist’s wire hanging loop, an Indonesian silver bead and matching bow.
They are personalized with a short message or pair of names which I write by hand on the glass using high temperture fired gold or platinum. Once the glass is refired, the writing is permanent. What a great way to tell someone what is in your heart.
