'True love doesn't mean being inseparable. It means being separated and nothing changes.'
Exquisitely sculpted holding heart with scalloped seam and concave shaping whereby the heart seems to fold in on itself. The curved edge suggests a separation - a breaking apart, and yet there is a continuity also as the design holds its integrity and wholeness. The finesse of the design creates a smooth satisfying surface feel - a bit like holding a bar of soap.
Images show our Scultped Holding Heart original design by Noel Brennan. The item is shown in use and alongside other products including the Heartstone, smaller pocket heart and also the Heart Sculpture and to give an idea of relative size and scale.
Sculpted Holding Heart
Measures 9 x 7 x 3 cm
This sculpted heart is made using white cement and locally-sourced crushed granite dust to which we add a polymer bonding agent to make the concrete frost proof and waterproof.
Cremation ashes are mixed into the cement as the cast is being poured so it becomes a solid piece of cremation sculpure as opposed to a hollow urn.
As with all our sculpture, a small amount of ashes is added to the heart mould as the cement is being poured so that they become fully incorporated into the solid piece.
