Oh so sweet heart

Using a sgraffito technique, this handmade heart was gently carved to create floral patterns and the all-important message, “XOXO”. The heart is mounted in a black wood frame to show off the work. A hanger is attached and 4 small felt pads have been added to protect the frame and the wall. 8” x 8” x 2.25”

I used a pink Velvet underglaze to carve this heart. It was bisque fired. Afterward, a clear glaze is sprayed on top and the piece was fired again. The clay is a porcelain-like stoneware and fired to ^5-6. The phrase “Sweetheart” was first recorded in 1250-1300 and was originally swete herte.
