I made the first heart similar to this as part of the 'Hugs Challenge' which was organised by Anglian Potters during lockdown. Everyone was missing real hugs, so the challenge was to make a ceramic piece on the theme of Hugs. There were so many different interpretations ! All the entries were included in an online exhibition and were sold to raise funds for the charity Nelson's Journey that supports bereaved children. It was a great project to be a part of and the heart was so much fun to make that I decided to do a few more !
