The Artisan Process...
Each of our Devotion Sprung Hearts start out as a soft moist block block of clay. They raw clay is individually hand-molded and shaped into a curvy, full-figured sculpture of a heart. No 2 heart sculptures are ever exactly the same, the definition of a "Perfect Heart". The Sprung Hearts have a unique additional feature- during the sculpting process 10 - 12 metal wires are fused into the raw ceramic. This profound artisan technique is unique to our Devotion Ceramic studios. Once the sculpting is complete the raw clay sculptures are placed in a large traditional red brick Kiln where the clay is heated and cured naturally by wood. After removing from the kiln the now dense and durable ceramic sculptures are completely hand painted in either a rich glossy red, or matt chalky white both color combinations are finished with a varnish rub. The small accents at the tip of each metal spring(heart and star shaped accents, also sculpted from ceramic) are painted in either a gold or silver enamel. This entire artisan process is very detailed. The finished work of art is beautifully intricate and dimensional sculpture that we call the Devotion Sprung Heart. Display Indoor or outdoor(in covered area) to your liking. Equipped to hang on wall.
Inspiration behind our Devotion Heart Collection.
Each heart is a true combination of old world craftsmanship and whimsical artistry. Over the years we have created several Devotion hearts each uniquely different than the next. The concept for each heart’s design has emerged from our journeys throughout Mexico and the friendships we have built. Devotion Hearts are vestiges of love inspired by passion, stories of romance, faith and devotion.
