The top half of this pretty heart is a clear pale pink with Mum on 1 side, the bottom half a pretty baby pink with fun purple polka dots with 3D flowers and leaf details wrapping around the middle. Would make a great gift for your mum or 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: Baby pink with purple dots bottom & pale transparent pink top heart with pale pink flower 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
**I do take custom orders so if you would like this style of heart but in different colours or would like it without 'Mum' please feel free to message me**
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 stainless-steel rod and then its 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.
