Heart of Glass

There are two sides to being in love. There's the thrilling, bubbling whirl of feelings that pulse in your chest, and then there's the vulnerable sensation of placing your heart in someone else's hands.

Artist Jim Loewer captures both ends of this spectrum in his colorful, glass heart bowl. The hand-blown glass churns with a passionate rush of color that circles around the outside. And Loewer uses an ancient technique called lampworking to form the rim into an open heart. In lampworking (as in love) the heart's true form is created as the raw material is warmed over a flame, becoming soft to the touch. Whether as a commemoration of a new romance or a time-tested partnership, this work of art will be a treasured memento of enduring love in all its varieties. Handmade in Philadelphia.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Glass artist Jim Loewer is inspired by Flaubert's ironic definition of art: "of all lies, art is the least untrue." But this much is true: his glass blowing is primarily self taught through a process of trial and error, and he loves the relatively instant gratification that comes with the process. A bit of a renaissance man, Jim has an undergraduate degree in painting, a teaching degree, and a law degree he obtained studying at night while making glass by day. Jim focuses on contemporary organic forms influenced by Japanese craft and the American studio glass movement.

I would NEVER buy this product again

This is the worst product I have ever purchased from this website. If it had been the first one, I would never consider buying another item from you.

Smaller than I anticipated but it is pretty and light

Holds small oranges (I.e.: cuties) or tangerines or snack mix, nuts, pretzels, etc. we will see how it holds up to a six kid household over time as well as how well/easy it is to clean. Wish it was twice as big.

Not what I expected....

I wanted to love this and purchased it as a Valentines Day gift but I don't like it - at all. To the point where I am not giving it. I've shown it to a few people and they had the same reaction. I'm sad because it looked beautiful in the pictures but it's.... odd.

Looks great, but the unique design can look like a defect if you don't take care in where you place it.
