This piece is quite personal, and was created from a long and powerful emotion that led to a small idea which just kept growing inside me.
The heart is partially split, but the split line is that of a silhouette of a girl – you can interpret the piece however you want, has the girl has broken the heart, is she responsible for its repair, or perhaps it’s only her that can hold the heart together….
….for me, it’s all of those things, because she is my heart, simply by lying beside me….
The piece is solid stainless steel with the central split being wire eroded. The shaping and finishing of the heart is entirely by hand, and the piece is mounted on oak to provide a warm yet contrasting background and is wall hung.
Size 130mm x 150mm
