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.
