Heart of Glass

There are two sides to being in love. There's the thrilling, bubbling whirl of feelings that pulse in your chest, and then there's the vulnerable sensation of placing your heart in someone else's hands.

Artist Jim Loewer captures both ends of this spectrum in his colorful, glass heart bowl. The hand-blown glass churns with a passionate rush of color that circles around the outside. And Loewer uses an ancient technique called lampworking to form the rim into an open heart. In lampworking (as in love) the heart's true form is created as the raw material is warmed over a flame, becoming soft to the touch. Whether as a commemoration of a new romance or a time-tested partnership, this work of art will be a treasured memento of enduring love in all its varieties. Handmade in Philadelphia.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Glass artist Jim Loewer is inspired by Flaubert's ironic definition of art: "of all lies, art is the least untrue." But this much is true: his glass blowing is primarily self taught through a process of trial and error, and he loves the relatively instant gratification that comes with the process. A bit of a renaissance man, Jim has an undergraduate degree in painting, a teaching degree, and a law degree he obtained studying at night while making glass by day. Jim focuses on contemporary organic forms influenced by Japanese craft and the American studio glass movement.

            This little charmer can decorate a desk, hold a voltive candle, be used as a ring keeper, or any other idea you come up with. The glass is deep ruby red with beautiful swirls of darker and lighter colors. This is a wonderful, beautiful gift. The packaging is stunning and was packed with several other items, all glass. Everything arrived in good shape. Me compliments to the packing department.

                  Comments about UncommonGoods Heart Bowl:

                  It was made very low quality. The glass was thing and untextured; the paint job was very lazy and dripping. In all I had to apologize to my wife when giving it to her, explaining it was expensive and looked nice in the photo. Very disappointed.
