How It's Made

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.

Artisan Story

Zenwaro's collaborative relationship with the artist and master ceramicist, Rafael Piñeda, began 12 years ago. His experience with terracotta began at a young age, under the training of an uncle who was sculptural artist also working with terracotta clay. Rafael’s immediate family does not lack talented ceramicists, both uncles and one aunt are accomplished ceramic artists. 

Rafael’s mentoring uncle was visually impaired and years later became completely blind. But the lack of sight never halted Luis's devotion for sculpting, rather he continued working until his death in 2019. Rafael cures/bakes all of his pieces in a wood-fired kiln, he has resisted the urge to convert his production model to a gas-fired, modern kiln. Rafael’s creativity observes the "traditional way" where he can control every aspect of the firing process.
