This listing is for a custom horsehair raku heart pendant.
This heart is handmade completely from clay. After creating the heart, it was dried and burnished with a soft cloth to create a smooth finish. Once bisque fired, it was fired in a raku kiln.
While the piece was red hot (about 1400°F), it was removed from the kiln and actual horse hair was burned onto the surface to create the black lines. The piece was later cleaned to leave a smooth finish. Each one is handmade so there are never two alike.
The hearts are available in several colors. Please choose your color when ordering. The options are:
- Light Blue
- Sage Green
- Rustic Red
The heart will be made with hairs that you mail to the following address:
Lindsey Epstein Pottery, 324 East Rd., Tiverton, RI 02878. Please include your order number with the hairs. The tail hairs work best and should be at least 4" long (longer is better). You don't need to send too many- 10-15 strands in plenty. Please allow 2-3 weeks for your heart to be completed once the hairs are received.
The hearts measure approximately 2-2.5" wide x 2-2.5" tall. They are made of solid clay and weight approx. 50 grams. While a little heavy as a necklace, they are still comfortable to wear or could be hung in a window or in a special place. They are not completely flat, they are rounded like a three-dimensional heart. Each one is constructed by hand so there are variations between each heart.
PLEASE NOTE- no necklace is included. This listing is or the pendant only. Comes in a soft velvet keepsake bag.
