Or so it would appear. I don't normally make too many things in heart shapes. But I've really enjoyed shaping these free form without molds or cutters. This ones a little larger version and a little flatter. If I made it into a plump one like the little ones, it would be a bit like hanging a bolder around your neck. That might look good for the Flinstones but I don't think it's very practical, really.
Here's the little fat ones. (oops, plump sound so much better). I love the feel of these and actually hate to part with them. They feel very nice in your hand and I can imagine that if I were wearing one of these I would spend a great deal of time just touching it. That could either be very distracting or come in really handy if you were, for example, in a very boring meeting.
These are my favourite. While I like the saturated colours of the glazed pieces, there is something irresistable about naked porcelain. I fired these to maturity so they are almost like glass. Then I tumbled them for a long time. They really do feel a lot like river stones. I think I'll make some of these without holes for a couple of special people I know, so they can carry them in their pockets.
Hope you've all had a great start to the week. Cheers!
