Love this


This is a hand carved 2 inch thick solid wood love heart with an antique style silver key and keyhole on the front. The heart is carved from a piece of very dark and dense wood, I think it lignum vitae, but I can’t be sure. The heart changes colour depending on how the light hits it, it goes from almost black to light brown, this is the woods natural colour I only used clear varnish , I like to see the woods real colours. The heart feels lovely in the hand, almost glass like smoothness. The heart sits nicely on an ancient bit of tree stump, it’s incredibly old and full of different colours and textures. This is mounted securely to a piece of thick swithland slate. The slate is from Wanlip hall and farm estate which was demolished in the 1930’s. Relics from this old hall can be found all around the area i live in. Now for the twist, within the old bit of wood the heart sits on there is s secret compartment containing a small parchment type scroll, about 8cms by 6.5 cams when unrolled, just enough room to write a secret love note or message for your loved one. Or I could write you a short poem. Please get in touch be happy to discuss it with you. All in all I think this would make a stunning gift for a loved one and a truly individual one at that! The dimensions of the piece are, 33cms wide, 30cms wide, 22cms high approx weight is 3.5kgs


Made the first one for my partners birthday, everybody who saw it loved it so I decided to make some more.
