Product Details

I make each of these little hearts by hand, cutting shaping and layering coloured glass pieces and then fusing (=melting) them together in my kiln – at temperatures approaching 800c in a process that takes 7 hours from start to finish.

After the hearts have fused, I use a diamond-drill to make the hole, apply the writing/design, and fire-polish each heart for another 7 hours in the kiln. The iron in the text becomes fused into the glass and turns a rich sepia-brown.

During the fusing process, small bubbles may form between the layers. This adds character to the piece – and shows that it is handmade, not mass-produced.

Each heart is finished with a short coloured silky hanging cord (colours vary – please email if you would like a specific colour for your heart)

We usually have these hearts in stock ready for despatch, but, just in case, please allow at least one week for us to make your heart.

Measures about 2 1/4″ inches tall – supplied in organza gift-pouch with short silky cord hanger and swingtag, hang from the window-frame with a thin thread or fishing line.

Suitable for indoor or outdoor use – if hung outdoors please ensure that the suncatcher cannot knock against anything. Handmade in West Cork.
