At the center of this piece is the Noble Heart, uniquely cast from hues of gold-purple transparent and opaque art glasses. The distinctive glass heart is positioned on a handmade, three-dimensional frame specifically designed to complement the heart. This particular frame is kilncarved from gold-purple, plum, warm white and neo-lavender glasses. The art work is hung using a two-part aluminum French cleat (included). Signed on reverse side. Approximate size: 6.5"w x 6.5"h x .67"d.
Purple is the color of imagination and spirituality. It is often associated with royalty, wisdom and luxury. Leadership with a noble heart is all about caring and supporting others. It is not about the self, but about knowing and acting on the needs of others to bring out their very best.
How It's Made:
This unique, handmade art glass piece is created over several weeks incorporating various kilnforming techniques and processes including kiln casting, kilncarving, grinding, sandblasting and polishing. Four separate kiln firings are required to complete.
- All art work is handmade by Robert Wiener in the DC Art Glass Studio. Kilnforming is a method of shaping glass in a kiln using heat and gravity. Techniques used by the artist include fusing, slumping, casting, printmaking and coldworking. It is common of kilnformed glass to have slight color shifts and small "champagne" bubbles.
