Cream heart with 3D roses and leaves details wrapping around the whole heart. Would make a great gift for any garden or plant enthusiast! Perfect for decorating your garden or plant pots, for outdoors or in.
My lampwork artisan glass items are handmade by myself, Darrelle in my cosy little studio in South Devon, UK. Each one is made individually and shaped by hand so the flowers, leaves and size might vary a little in each one.
Colour: Cream with red roses and green leaves Approximate Size: The heart is 2.5- 3cm across by 2-2.5cm high. Comes on a 16cm long stainless-steel rod. Quantity: 1 heart plant stake
How it's made: The glass is melted until molten using a 1700° flame from a dual fuel torch. When the glass is hot and melted it acts like honey, the hotter it is the more it moves and drips. So, when the glass is acting like set honey, I can start wrapping it around a stainless-steel rod and then it's formed using both gravity and tools. Once it is complete it’s put into a kiln for several hours to bake then cooled down slowly, this is how the glass is hardened to make it durable.
