Always keep a little love close by. This vibrant heart paperweight is hand-blown by April Wagner and fellow women artisans in their Michigan studio. They craft this sweet symbol by layering colors, then encasing them in clear soda lime glass. Give one to mom, daughter, or someone you're sweet on so they know whose heart they have. Each is signed and dated on the bottom. Handmade in Pontiac, Michigan.

Even as a kid, April Wagner had an artist’s interest in form, color, and line. Born in Muskegon, Michigan, she earned a BFA from Detroit’s College for Creative Studies and opened a glassblowing studio after discovering her passion. "I was in love with ceramics," she recalled, "but then I tried glassblowing… I’d found the thing I wanted to do for the rest of my life." Her studio has since grown to 4,000 square feet, with a team of talented glassblowers and pieces in prominent collections worldwide.
