Ceramic Heart with Twig

This is one of my hearts with what looks like a twig growing through it, in progress on my work table. I first have to piece the heart and create a hole slightly larger than the twig, to allow for shrinkage as the clay dries. Later, after the heart is glaze fired, the twig is inserted and glued into place. Then I also add a hand sculpted bird to the twig. I just love the organic feel to this series of hearts, each one is one of a kind!
